Sandcastles

Whilst out in Turkey, when I had the opportunity…I built a sandcastle or two…Now you might think I was being infantile – and that would be your free choice, but when all you have is the sand and the sea (and perhaps the odd turtle for company) there’s v. little you can do other than get your hands in the sand and build something.

My building site for a few days

In honour of all those structures that fell to the waters of Oledeniz and Fetyihe I thought i’d pull out a favourite poem of mine Written by me on a similar shore

Basic sandcastles

Sandcastles

By Brian F Kirkham

They stand tall against the tide

lined up, like a wall.

Crafted and built up on the beach,

about a foot tall.

Solid in Structure, and easy to make,

They stand tall and proud – not one of them breaks.

Until the time comes, and Sea reaches shore

and these Titans of Sand, crumble once and then more

as they keep taking water – they tumble to the sea

so its time to head home now and have fish for our tea!
