Encrusted

Salford (via Navagio Beach) , 22nd February 2018

 

White Sandy beaches,

Offset by clear blue sea

Navigated rusted boat sat by the cliffside

Down where the anchor should be

Encrusted with Barnacles and other sea creatures

Rock formations , home to a multitude of life

From strings of mussels to hermit crabs

Unless someone picks them up – they’ll sleep away in the sun

Looking around when its time for tea

Crossroads

Salford 12th February 2018

Crossroads

Coming to a big decision is

Really down to you

Of course, you have the choices laid out for you

Smorgasbord of things to do , and places to go

Some helpful advice from teachers, academics and of course, family

Reactions from friends – expected – they might be sad but

Over time – they’ll respect your decision

After you’ve weighed up all the advice

Dont panic – and

Somehow you’ll go down the right path

 

 

The Note

Inscrutable

Salford 31st January 2018

Investigating officers from Scotland Yard

never could fully understand the piece of paper lying in the open

safe. Was it written in some sort of cipher ? It could have been

composed by a small child, but what kind of kid knew how to

ratchet open a safe with three levered locks?

Understandably, they’d have to call in an expert.

Till then, they let the scenes of crime fellows

analyse the scene…piece by piece

By the end of the week – the puzzle was a

little clearer, but the loot and the villains had

Escaped across the sea – it would be a while till they were caught.
