Thursday photo prompt #Wicker #writephoto

wicker dancers

In the field there danced three witches

no bones nor flesh just willow switches,

holding hands they whirled around

though their feet never left the ground,

while all who watched were filled with glee

laughing at their transparency

nothing to worry us here they said

one good fire and the witch is dead.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #27

come-dance-in-may

A silly young girl from Lynton

took a stroll across the meadow for fun

but her shorts were miniscule,

she took off her blouse to keep cool

now she has bites where she’d rather have none

I saw the pail tip

yet still it caused me to slip,

pride before a fall

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #26

bunker-cliff-1When the explorers finally broke through the dense, green, forest covering there was a collective sigh of relief. At last we’ve found it they exclaimed. No more digging a trench by torchlight away from the safety of the camp and squatting over it, vulnerable to any creature of the  night.

”What’s wrong Billy,” said his mother with a smile, “and why do you keep on going to that little tree and standing in front of it?”

”Well you remember when I was three, you stood me up to it and made that mark where my head was?”

”Yeeess, why, did it bother you?”

”Well you told me that that would be half my height I’d be when I grow up.”

”That’s right dear, that’s what they say. Why do you keep on checking it?”

”Well, mum, I’m getting smaller and smaller. I was a lot taller then, I’m never going to reach twice the height that mark is now.
