A-Z writing challenge, letter ‘V’ Vibrant Festival


image

Festival!
Vibrant colourful boats
Shelter together,
Bright kaleidoscopic bunting
Laughing,
Ardent midday sun
Penetrating.
Amidst thronging jollity
Intimate marriage takes place.
Their vivacious, flourishing,  shimmering
Robes, reflect passionate vibrancy
Of the festival beyond.

A-Z Writing challenge, letter ‘T’ Treasure


image

Treasure
Warmth,
Touching
Roundness, smooth,
Silkiest natural palest
Pebble, greys, browns.

Treasure their free
Affectionate playful natures,
Deep, soulful, sky blue
Eyes, knowing.

Treasure moodiness,
Turbulent swell,
Spitting waves,
Sudden dry saltiness
In the air.
Invigorating
Thirst,
Mezmerised
By shimmering,
Laboradite waters.

To treasure
And be treasured is
A calm knowingness.
Love

A-Z Writing challenge, letter ‘S’ Sea shell sketches


image

image

Sea shell homesteads,
Delicate.
Intimate, cosy.
Free spirits in
Underworld oceans,
Hiding from predators.
Venturing out
On sunny, safe days.
Flamboyantly displaying
Beautiful, palest Apricot,
Ochre and Cream
Patterning.

A-Z Writing challenge, letter ‘R’ Rambling in nature’s radiance


image

Rambling
Feeling free like red,
Blue and violet scarves
Swirling in saline breeze
Memories of Tibetan
Prayer flags.
Glinting earth jewels
Entrancing, pebbles
With faces like seals.
Radiant solar warmth shines
On gently crashing waves,
Voices of the sea singing
Nature’s forever
Healing grace.
Shyly, waves recede,
Frothing like a delicate
Lace mantle.

A-Z writing challenge, letter P, Planting for the future


image

Planting footsteps,
Trailing,
Pushing through the
Persistant breeze,
Upwards finally
Reaching a safe place
Where hunger is
Satisfied with
Future positive dreams.

A-Z writing challenge letter M Message in the sand


image

One wild, dangerous night,
Church bells, deep in the sea
Chimed furiously at midnight.
Flickering flame from a fisherman’s
Lantern suddenly snuffed out
As rolling waves
Roared to a crescendo.
Turbulent sea churned spitting out
Remnants of the night.
The message in the sand.

After the storm


image

A mingle of footprints trail
Away from dissipating
Stormy weather,
Churning, spitting waves
Calmly flow into frothy,
Lacy edged, salty waves;
Spicy jewels, gleaming sea glass,
Glinting quartz and
Tiny scallop shells peep
Up from soft, warm wetness.

Essences of time


image

Whispering  ripples 

Pebbles,  textural muted secret messages

Shivering slates shine

Icy  reflections  melt

In a glistening  golden  haze

Love


image

As we walked along the beach on our honeymoon,
every stone that we picked up was heart shaped, a sign of our love.
What a wondeful way to start married life!
We have a home filled with these precious sea ‘hearts’.
