Hiding in the shade

Memories of scorching sun

Holidays? a dream

This is part of Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku Challenge

Pack , Unpacked.

I have unpacked my suitcase

Of a tan about me there’s no trace.

I was totally beach ready,

From my toes to my heady.

My toes and my nails, sparkly green

Hands red raw from washing them clean.

I had bought beach clothes

Some of the shades matched my toes.

Tomorrow was the day we would fly

I am down but refuse to cry.

The Caribbean is now out of bounds

St. Lucia has closed her door

I agree that she has good grounds

But I did want some sun and what’s more

It’s a beautiful place, I know as I’ve been there before.

To tell you the truth, though sad

I am in a strange way glad

The foreign office said you best not go

We can’t guarantee getting you home,so

I am happy to stay in cold Blighty

Dark times, for us all, problems mighty.

So lets be kind not greedy,

Leave goods for the needy.

So I was not meant to escape

*****

This really might sound pathetic but the last three days have been very stressful. Not only the holiday but all the stress of the new Government restrictions set for our own good. Be safe be kind be happy. I am still scared.

Wordless Wednesday, Wish I was there!

Wordless Wednesday Carribbean Blue.

Calor Lily. Nonet

Calor Lily pure of soul and heart

Growing in harmony with Daisies

By the church door reaching high

Clarity shines apart

Underneath the Yew

Sing God’s praises

The Calor 

Lily

Pure

Holiday Haiku

Blue skies, sound of waves

Sun hot, so un-English like

Loving holidays.

Porchestet Sunset.

The sunset on Porchestet Castle  and something is emerging from the mud.

There are men crawling the last yards out of the mud and tidal water that separates where we stand and castle walls.

A Navel instructor in fatigues stands on the wall watching these black clothed and muddy figures. 

I ventured to ask him what was happening… He shot us grin and replied, “I asked them to touch the castle walls for me”. Those castle walls were over half a mile away.

We watch them fighting nature who was trying to suck them back into her jaws.

Finally they made it up the steep walls and callapsed on to the pavement. They did look tired and due to the heat they were having water poured all-over them.

Then they had to run back up to their barracks for a shower and hopefully a rest.


Once they all left we left the waters edge and walked the dogs back across the field.

No wifi: Thoughts from France

Hi  everyone

There is no  wifi   or  proper  phone  signal  so  I  cannot  us  the  phone  to blog.

The  hardwired internet  here is  awful,  so  slow  that  you  could  make  a  three  course  meal  while it loads!  I  am exaggerating   but only  a little.

So  I  shall  try  to  read  and like   what  I  can  of  all  your  fabulous   blogs   but  it  would  take  too long  to  comment  or  publish!!! Hubby   has only  so much  patience ….and  come  to  that  so have I.

 

So  love  to  you all from France  and  see  you  all next  week!!

Love willow

This is part of LindaGHill’s SoCs this week Linda said:Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “view.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Pingback and rules here. 

The View

This is the view from my sun bed in the orchard of the Gite that we are staying in at the moment in Brittany. 

As you can see it is a lovely and peaceful view. The silence is almost total and really adds to the view.

As I am on holiday I can show  you some other views too! 

Josselin  town square. 

Cafe where we had a drink this afternoon.

A Chateau. 

In my view Brittany is a beautiful place!
