I saw the pail tip

yet still it caused me to slip,

pride before a fall

MY FURRY FRIEND “BIG RED”

Another sombre Sunday story to remind us of human ignorance and arrogance.

Welcome to Tofino Photography

20160504-2Z6A0396

Last Friday I was on my way out to camp for a few days when a friend told me about a bear I’ve known for years. “Big Red” is the largest male bear out there. Nobody messed with “Big Red”!

I looked back into my archives to see how long I’ve known him? About 8 years as it turns out. I called him “Big Red” because of his rear end being reddish in colour. When bears get mange their hair falls out and when the new hair grows back in for some reason its a reddish colour.

“Big Red” was unusual,he would stop and stare at you like a human It was unnerving to be honest! I first met him years ago up in Fortune Channel. Most of the bears are there because of the crabs. After a year of being there he decided to move to quieter regions. It…

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #105 -Denial

The pixie Princess

 

forest girl

O’er hill and dale, from forests green

came fairies , elves, denizens of dreams

for as was the custom in this land

a choice was made to claim the hand

in marriage, of the beautiful Trixie,

daughter of the King of the pixies

From northern lands came Knghts and Lords,

prepared to tourney with lance and sword

against magicians, heroes, clerics,

from foreign realms both Sheikhs and mystics

with gilded swords, scimitars, gifts of gold

eager to claim a prize foretold

in legends and old long-told fables

or just to dine at the sumptuous tables.

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.

life, ephemeral,

from the corner of my eye

the spectre sighted,

she drifts, part of the forest

and yet leave men’s minds doubting

Nestled in his wings

yet unseen, the playful sprite,

plucks tunes from her hair.

Unknowing, all she hears is,

snare-drum stone midst cooing foam.

WHAT DO YOU SEE? MAY 7/2019

”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.

When Humpty Dumpty

a tumble ensued.
