#WRITEPHOTO – Lake .

Welcome to the weekly #writephoto prompt!

This week’s prompt is a post with a difference – our first guest photo!

A great big thank you to Sadje over at Keep it Alive – for agreeing to be the featured photo this month. What a beautiful photo to get us started too.

Lake – Image by Sadje

For visually challenged writersthe image shows a lake surrounded by trees and a mountain range in the distance. On the lake edge, you can see a lonesome log floating and a grassy flowered edge.

Reflections.

Is it the blue of the sky
With white clouds skudding by
Or the blue of the lake
With the white flower brake.
Reflections tease us
Reflections please us.
Is it up or is it down
Is it a smile or a frown.
Is the log floating or flying
Are those trees or rushes.
Reflections tease us
Reflections please us.
Ripples spreading from the to the center
Waters so clear you want to enter
Will you sink or will you swim
Or will you fly or dive within.
Reflections tease us
Reflections please us.

What do you see # 44- 24 August 2020

( For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a girl dancing under the jets of water of a fountain, which are meeting above her in an arc)

Dancing in my head

“Your stuck with curvature
You’ll never look the same.
So you better make friends with that pain.”

Looking out the window I heard the words they said
But I was miles away dancing in my head .

When I get upset, not feeling free.
In rain, sun or snow .
Those words come back to haunt me .
So into my head I go.

When I feel pushed and pressured
All I can think of is the words they said.
I close my eyes and bugger them,

I go dancing in my head!

When looking in the mirror is too much to bare
My clothes look like something I shouldn’t wear.
I close my eyes and let the music flow.
Then dancing in my head I go.

When pain is over baring and I can’t get out of bed
I close my eyes and bugger them I go dancing in my head.

I am still the me I was before.

Though not quite the same.
When I am at my worst I play my saving game.
I am sorry if you think me rude and blanch at things I’ve said.

But when it all becomes too much
I go dancing in my head.

So don’t judge me by my cover I am still a happy soul.
I may not be perfect but I am whole.
When things get too much and depressions wanting fed.
Bugger it I shout and go dancing in my head

For the Visually challenged readers, the picture shows a woman dressed as a warrior standing on a rock and next to her is a giant mask. One of the eye socket of which is half broken.

Celtic Warrior am I

I fight my foe until I die

I see through your mask of hate

Evil far too deep to contemplate.

If I must descend into the fires of hell

I will take your mask of hate as well.

What do you see #20: 9th March

This week Sadje has chose an image by Akshay Premjith @ Pixabay for our challenge.

For Visually challenged readers, the picture shows a woman walking barefoot on the wet sand of a beach, leaving footprints behind her. One footprint appears to be much larger in comparison to her foot or it could just be an illusion!

Not for want of trying, she

Spread her wings, trying to be free.

Not for want of doing right

She raged and screamed against the night

Not only for herself

She questioned the distribution of wealth .

Not for her grandchildren but also she,

Had tried to set the opposed free

And scrape the plastic from the sea.

Not just on a whim
