Olympia Landed

Some place, Some where

It began on a field of green

on a soggy spring day

 

And as the rain fell

muddy puddles splashed

as damp feet advanced

 

The grey soon disappeared

as speeds increased and

coaches unleashed new hurdles

 

Soon young minds engaged

beating Ra to the punch

and clock times were smashed

 

Leading to a moment

a time in the sun

where medals were gained, by leading from the front

Shimmer

Shimmer

Shining in the bright moonlight

holding her beauty by the waters edge

in the way she reflects herself in the water

maybe she will catch someone’s eye

mariners on the hunt for precious cargo

expecting to find valuables where she is

resting

Reflecting

A response to the reflecting prompt, taken at Salford Quays recently

Sunset Reflecting on Ontario Basin, Salford Quays, Lancashire UK

Taken by me using my Sony DSC-H300 camera – using sunset mode and continuous frame.

Had a while to wait for the sun to duck below the clouds, but i’m happy with the end result and the colours in the water and sky.

Anyone wondering about the buoys in the water – this is where the watersports centre do their windsurfing, canoeing and line surfing.

In response to the prompt H2O

Whilst the morning brings the odd boat sailing up the canal,

and the dredger cleaning the bottom

Sailboats traverse around Erie and Ontario – as

the Dazzling Snowdrop gives tours

The sun shines on the surface

creating rainbows where it can

as local wildlife teach their youngsters

the ways of the water

and as the sun scatters its beams on its way

the lights paint softly across the bay

Reflection

Through the silvered glass

My double appeared

in a parallel world

 

Things looked the same,

but different – reversed

in this new world

 

For every beaker, soap and toothbrush

duplicated itself intact

in this new world

 

Through fog and steam

we worked as a team

removing facial hair

without a care

 

but alas – poor fate

the broken pact

as someone came through the door

and mirror cracked on the floor
