Weekly Writing Challenge: Threes

Weekly Writing Challenge – write a post using three photographs for inspiration

A walk through an old train tunnel leads out onto a hill overlooking the sea.  From the hill it is possible to see the mountains and the view along the coastline leads to old Pillboxes now sloping into the sea, the elements
now removing them from their watch posts.

pill boxes

These brick defences
Old and neglected
So crumbles the earth
Foundations defective

Service now rendered
Structures forgotten
And waves take over
As masonry is rotten

The elements now move
Buildings of the past
So time, sand and sea
Mean they will not last

Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure

For this Challenge I was trying to think of gems I see that I class a treasure. The jewels I find in daily life.

Walneyisland

There is something magical about the Ocean. It is the sound of the waves coming ashore, the percussion of the tide drawing back to rehearse for the crashing of the waves. There is the smell of the salty air that crisps the senses and clears thoughts like a dose of therapy for the mind.

The views are also worth their weight in gold. From orange sunset skies to days of pink and violet hues of clouds that look like a well draped necklace on the earths horizon for all that look up to admire the display.

Orangeskies

My treasure therefore is the Sea. Its healing music, its gallery of skies and the peace and fortitude of calm.
