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 Writing Challenge: The Sound of Silence

My Garden Gate


Come poorly souls
With minds distressed
Come to my garden
To convalesce

My garden gate
Is open to you
To find some peace
Which is over due

Come rest a while
On my garden seat
So close your eyes
And feel the heat

You can feel the
Sun honing down
To bless your face
So do not drown

See the colours
A brighter day
Floating butterflies
Are on display

The bold beginning
Blossoms unfold
An artist’s palette
All to behold

The birds do sing
Soothing and clear
Choraling for you
Tame and near

Come find solace
From troubled state
Leave the problems
At the garden gate
