We sit by the burn

and remember the old days

Spring in the Highlands

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #242 Night ritual

At the end of every evening

before switching off the lights

I check on my household pets

and bid them all Goodnight

a tank containing goldfish

two cats and dog as well

I sometimes say it to my wife

or else she gives me hell

Crimson’s Creative Challenge 164 The lifeboat “Louisa.” https://youtu.be/HcIdT-bPNKU

In Porlock Bay there was a great squall

that cut the tow of the Forest Hall

the Watchet lifeboat couldn’t launch there

so they called the boys from Lynmouth fair

without hesitation their brave men

said we will do what we can for them,

over hill and moor they dragged their boat

and from Porlock bay set her afloat

they set off from Porlock beach

so that those poor crew they then could reach

you may not believe but this is true

how they saved the lives of that ship’s crew.

Ronovan writes #Decima prompt #90 The beauty of nature

Out in the woods I saw today

guaranteed to lighten my heart

was a sight of natural art

for on the grass I spied a jay

although quite common so they say

as on the grass he alighted

true to say I was delighted

silver blue wingtips shining bright

and chessboard flanks of black and white

with fawn and purple neck and breast

his long beak probing on it’s quest

truly a magnificent sight

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #241 Brevity is the key to success.

Being a writer who

used words like hullabaloo

realising that is a sin

I now use the word din

Buried in the drift

her fleece becomes a haven

Winter lambs give tongue

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #240 Guardian of the forest

Whether in a sunlit forest clearing

or hidden deep within the dank, moist shade

he will be found forever preening

a gaudy, strutting Indian brave,

proudly standing with his tail displayed,

a hundred eyes are always watching

throughout earth’s history was there ever

found in nature a sight quite matching

the splendour of each jewelled feather

unlidded eyes that will not ever

close thus allowing him sleep or rest

all the while displaying pavonine breast

the faithful guardian of the forest

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #162 The winged messenger

I heard a song from in the trees

and looking up I felt at ease

for if a robin doth appear

a loved one though once lost is near

so I gazed upon his bright red breast

happy knowing they are all at rest

Sea and sky entwined

like lovers, viewed from afar

our one blue planet
