Quay and tea

Salty fishing huts,
Decaying.
Fraying, swaying
Tangled rope.
Old fangled
Lanterns.

Jam & crabs,
Salmon & dabs;
Foggy tea,
Weed curdling
Sea.

Salty sailing dream


image

Beached boats,
Huddled, hoping
To sail with
The incoming
Tide.

A dreamy flotilla
Follows creeks
Through
The salt marshes,
Meditatively
Meandering.

Bitterns hoot,
Black headed
Seagulls squark,
Salty,
Sea Lavender
Seduces
Sailors.

Southerly breezes
Fill mainsails
And jibs;
Shimmering
Seaspray spits
On faces
Dried by
Samphire,
Salty
Winds.

Naturally
Heeling,
Sailors intuitively
Right their boats
As rippling
Waters
Rhythmically
Slap
Against
Their bows.

Painterly colourful,
Pristine regatta
Proudly,  powers
Out to sea
Where
Sea faring
Story
Filled clouds,
Meet
The Ocean.

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 Challenge. Letter F – Flowing Tales


image

River Nene flows
Through natural
Reserve where
Peaceful life is
Never disturbed.
Nene swells,
Reeds tangle, shaking
Their heads,
Telling tales of sailing boats
Sweeping down river,
Wind swollen mainsail
Enjoying power of nature’s flow.
