Spinning is chilling


Spinning spectres lace

Spiders spinning,

Tidy,  minute threads.

Fine and shiny,

Filligree chilly limbs

Like lace trimmings

For a spectre’s wedding.

Magical sky

I took this photo on the evening of the eclipse. I can only describe to you the atmosphere was just so magical and the sky was pure poetry!

I woke up at 3.00am gmt and ventured into our garden to watch the blood moon emerge as the eclipse took place. I shared the experience with the Piperstrelle bats which were swooping about. It was amazing. Unfortunately I had forgotten my camera and didn’t want to wake hubby who had an early start for work.:-)

Rowan Tales


scarlet rowan berries

Scarlet  Rowan berries,

 Glistening

In jewelled rich jellies.

Spread on beetroot  coloured bread,

Melting bellies of revellers

On moonlit wherries.

garnet jangling lanterns

Garnet jangling lanterns

Banish dune like phantoms.

Soothing tunes calm the

Sailor’s moods;

Fizzing Rowan balm

Made with water

From a sacred tarn,

Sealing sizzling, salty lips

Whilst a tattered packet

Scatters runes Iiilluminated

By a misty moon:

Promising good fortune.

misty moon 2

Yarns about far away isles

Keep them merry for

Miles and miles as the wherry

And the berry eyed whales

Surf high, thirsty

Bubbling waves:

Safe soon on soil

I almost fell into the hedge when taking this shot, but I couldn’t resist the temptation. Beautiful glossy red berries, probably deadly to birds because they are always left dangling, withering away eventually, quite sad really. However they make a photographer’s day! Enjoy!
