In pictures

I’ve been looking through my pictures
as I do from time to time
at photos I have taken
in the sunshine when it’s fine
others taken in the rain
or when walking by the sea
or up there on the Sussex hills
all precious here to me

For in each I see a something
of a moment captured there
a snapshot caught for memory
to treasure and to share

Passing through

Of the places that I travel to
surpassing all the rest
I have to say with hand on heart
Newcastle is the best

It has a certain ambiance
a ‘je ne sais quoi’ I’d say
Can’t quite find the words
but it appeals in every way

And though my visits often
just see me passing through
I’ll always do my level best
to see the river view

Poetic

Moody skies above the Thames
on early winter morn
I’d shiver in the brittle chill
save for the coat I’ve worn
But Tower Bridge beneath the blue
with massive skies right there
Is such to take my breath away
That I just had to share

You see, it’s simple, truth be told
when views like this I see
Words will follow, honed to verse
and then to poetry
For scenes like this, ‘poetic’
is the only thing to say
to encapsulate the moment
shared and captured by the day

Red Admiral

There for a fleeting moment
Red Admiral on the wall
Grabbed my camera quickly
‘Good call’, I hear, ‘Good call’

Snapped a hasty picture
Focus – a bit skewed
But caught the special moment
Before off away he flew

Last Sunrise

If I didn’t know better (and maybe I don’t)
it was almost as if the sun
had something of a point to prove
with another day begun

For again to the east in a grand golden glow
it rose up and grabbed little me
My senses there in overload
rather spectacularly

This is bordering frankly on overkill
but then who am I to mind?
For I’d be hard pressed a better sight
anywhere else to find

With eyes to see

Every so often
now and then
I’ll take a walk
with book and pen
and use my eyes
to look around
when walking in
and round this town

Sometimes I’ll notice
something new
perhaps seen from
a different view
And I will note it
in my book
And maybe take
a second look

These little moments
I then will share
so others round me
are aware
For I don’t want
to selfish be
with all these things
out there to see

And when I’ve shared
as I’ve been blessed
it’s only then
that I can rest
My paper filled
my pen at bay
Until, that is,
another day

Fog on the Ring – tanka

Fog thick as pea soup
shrouds the Sussex countryside
Trees hide like shadows
Quiet whispers, coy and shy
as again I climb the Ring
