Inch by inch we moved forward, attached by ropes around our waists. The ice was so cold we could feel it chilling our bones.

We inched on carefully watching for any cracks that might appear in the ice. The man at the front of the line signaled for us to stop and listen.

We all did, we heard the ice groaning and over that the tired howling of exhaustion. We all knew what to do. We spread out, those at the front laid down and continued to inch ahead. We further back held on tight to the ropes securing the men at the front.

We held those ropes tight we could not give an inch or they might slip and drown.

The howling was getting quieter now but we could not give up or relax our efforts. This was a valued member of our team they had saved many of us before.

The cry went up “Got her” slowly inch by inch we hauled her out. She was passed down the line across the frozen lake to the shore. As soon as she reached the bank she was wrapped up warmly in a moon blanket. And rushed off for medical treatment.

Later we visited her, luckily the Vet said she would be fine but the fabulous dog part of our team had been within an inch of losing her life! Even so she was soon back working with us again.

Reflection

Ripe

Echoes

Fall softly

Lightly around

Ever spreading out

Causing reflections to

Tremble and dance altered

Images before my tired

Old eyes, dim yet memory still bright.

No I see the beauty on reflection.

JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 10th Sunrise.

Our prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 10th is brought to you by Toortsie! Click here to find her last post and say hi while you’re there! Toortsie’s word for our prompt today is “Sunrise.” Use it anywhere in your post or make it the theme of your post. Have fun!

I have used Imogen Heap’s video of Xizi because it encapsulates Sunrise.

Sunrise

Oh! glory greets the dawn

Gold, and blue colours born.

A ring of stones ages old

Awaits the Sunrise shrouded in cold.

We stand expectant hand in hand

We lean the lessons from the land.

Chanting words we close our eyes

Joining with companions and strangers we send our message to the skies.

In early December I was on a course with The Silent Eye. On the last day of the course we were up before Sunrise to drive a short distance from our guests house to Castlerigg.

We arrived at the stone circle shortly before dawn. Although it was freezing I was buzzing and warm. I was excited to greet the new day, I felt electric.

We were eight but we were not alone. There were three men there dressed for hill walking and wrapped up well. We spoke with them and they seemed like kindred spirits.

In my mind I christened them “Hobbits”, only because they seemed so at one with the surroundings and on a quest too.

There were also two young women tourists taking photos. They were a little bemused by us.

As Sunrise grew closer we invited the Hobbits to join us in our circle to join hands and greet the dawn. They did so willingly saying they were always glad to join a circle.

As we greeted the sunrise we chanted holding hands with companions and strangers. I felt an inner warmth filling my while being.

As we left I thanked the Hobbits for their company, they said they had been happy to share the moment with us and that our paths would definitely cross again.

One our way back to our breakfast we saw the sunrise in all its glory.

We did return to Castlerigg stone circle later that morning to finish the course. It is a stunning place.

Strangely Sue mentioned that she and Stuart had returned to the same circle at sun set and had met the three gentlemen again (my Hobbits) so they had indeed crossed paths once more.

More thoughts from The Silent Eye‘s : The Full Circle : Finding your way home, weekend in Cumbria. For Just Jot it January.

There are many meanings to the word Master. It can mean you are the best you can be in a skill, job or pastime. Or that you are in charge as in Master of Ceremonies, Ring Master, Gang Master. Also you can take a master class least by someone who is a master in the subject. There are school masters, master degrees, and old/ grand masters (as artist and sportspeople are often referred to)

My favourite is being master to a pet, thought in this case I think master is the wrong word as I see my pet as an equal a friend.

To

Master

Your craft is

Something we all

We strive to achieve

Maybe we will take a

Masterclass to gain knowledge

Being a Grandmaster is not

The only thing we should strive to gain

We need to be rounded people as well.

Then of course there is the Masterpiece, Mastermind and the Masterplan

The Friday Reminder for SoCS & JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 5th

Our prompt from LindaGHill for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sap/sep/sip/sop/sup.” Use one or all of these words or find a word that contains them, but most of all, have fun! Wondering what to do with “sep”? This is interesting: https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=SEP Enjoy!


Sap rising means many things like goodness coming to the for, new beginnings but the literal meaning of the word refers to the life fluid of a tree,plant or animal (including humans). It can refer to strong feelings of love,lust, anger eg: he/she could feel the sap rising or he/she felt the sap draining out.

Looking at sip,sup and sop I am struck by the fact that they too refer to liquid or liquor. To sip a drink, to sup a drink ( old English version of sip) come to mind. Also and old English term is sop which refers to a drunkard,or alcoholic. As in, drunken old sop he had supped enough ale to sink a battleship. Or again in he could of sipped too much ale🤔.

That leaves us with sep now Linda found us an interesting meaning for that, to choose not to see a problem. Well people who sip and sup too much alcohol become a sop, they loose all their sap and the problem they have with drink to them is a sep.

Sep is also short for my special month September .
