The New Arrivals – Image by KL Caley.

It had been such a long night, cold as well. Liam was exhausted, not one of the Ewes had produced a single lamb….not one had gone into labour!

“Hey sleepy head”, it was Gena, “how’s it going. Looks like you’ve had a productive night.” Liam yawned and stretched as he accepted a hot mug of coffee and a foil wrapped bacon sandwich.

“It’s been a slow night he said, not a single sign of any of the Ewes having a single lamb! ” Gena looked at him oddly… “Looks like your wrong there. What’s that,” she said motioning to the far side of the pen. “What’s that, scotch mist?”

Liam could not believe his eyes, or ears. There was Millie with baby Mollie, and the others were looking and sounding as if things were on the move.

Nature knows what’s best.

Spring, renewal and new life.

It’s all a circle

Bruised face, two bruised wrists, one in a bandage, two bruised knees and a broken pair of glasses! …!

One-Liner Wednesday. 30th March 2021.

This is part of LindaGHill’s One-Liner Wednesday.

Stolen.

captivated

Locked , rooted to the spot

I was entrapped, cold yet blood hot.

Roots  from the soil wound up my thighs

My birds escaped me and took to the skies.

The words flew about the pages

As important as the words of sages.

I could not  move I was lost

They said read the pages at your cost.

Curiosity I could not contain

Captivated, I felt no pain.

All at once I was lifted  into the sky

Up into the grey where my  birds fly

Wind in my hair, no fear, I could not die.

Then down , down in to the tomb

Lost forever , trapped in the gloom.

Another of my old poem reworked from 2014.

#writephoto. Table.

KL Caley at Novel Ideas has offered to take on Sue Vincent’s #writephoto as a weekly challenge now it has become too difficult for Sue to continue

For visually challenged writersthe image shows a white table in a woodland with 9 chairs. The bottom of the table is the largest chair, each chair gradually gets smaller and smaller until you get to a tiny child’s chair at the top/head of the table.

The Rule of Six.

The rule of six, yes the rule of six. We fit that now, this time last year we did not. Apparently the grandchildren don’t count because they are too young. Nor Ruby she is a dog.

So we now fit the rule of six, three sons, one daughter in law and us, two beautiful grandsons and Ruby the dog.

….Okay so why nine chairs… Oh! That is in honour of Ivy. The Covid took her last year just after her 100th birthday. She loved a party, loved to be the centre of attention.

© willowdit21. Yes that’s a whiskey.

So now whatever the rule, one, six, ten whatever she will be there always in our hearts at the centre of the table.

With love to Sue.

#TANKA TUESDAY WEEKLY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 218 #EKPHRASTIC #PHOTOPROMPT

It’s time for an Ekphrastic #PhotoPrompt

This challenge explores Ekphrastic writing inspired by visual art (photographs). D.L. (Denise) Finn from last month’s challenge provided the photo for this month’s challenge. Interpret this photo through the eyes of a poet.

I have written an Etheree embodying the Spirit of Winter as bears the end of yearly reign.

Image Credit: D.L. Finn

Blue,
Colour
Of winter.
White forrest clothed
In soft ghostly mist.
As ever she gives care
To the beloved forrest trees
She hates to bid them fond farewell.
Her time is coming close to it’s end.
She prepares to hand her mantle to Spring.

Part of Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka.

#writephoto: Neptune.

KL Caley at Novel Ideas has offered to take on Sue Vincent’s #writephoto as a weekly challenge now it has become too difficult for Sue to continue.

For her first prompt K.L. has chosen a picture of a Statue of Neptune. Finally I have managed a Tanka, I have not been able to blog for a few days my muse had gone walk about.. I hope I am not too late.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a statue of King Neptune with his trident poised to catch a fish in a lake reflecting the green of the surrounding trees.

Neptune Image by KL CALEY.

Caught in the water
Sky, foliage forever
Neptune imprisoned
Trident held in the moment

Eternity is so long
