Down At The Boat

An Elfje sequence:

Morning.
The marina
comes to life.
Calm waters belie increased
activity.

Martins
twittering, flittering
around the boats,
among the rigging, playing
catch.

Hardly
a breath
of wind, barely
a ripple disturbs the
water.

Decks
wet with
overnight dew. Drying
sun beams down, set
fair.

Options

Today the day just can’t decide
what it wants to do.
Cloud, drizzle, wind or sun?
Checking all the options!

Broken Glass

Broken glass
beside the road
sparkles like diamonds
in the mid-morning sun.

At Last

At last a day
that’s dry and still.
The sun attempts
a watery smile.

Denial

The days lengthen,
the cold strengthens;
Winter in denial that
the return of the sun
has begun.

Encouragement

Overcast and humid.
A weak and watery sun
tries to break through.
Birds sing encouragement.

Cycling Quote 2

“To me it doesn’t matter whether it’s raining or the sun is shining or whatever: as long as I’m riding a bike I know I’m the luckiest guy in the world.

Mark Cavendish (“The Manx Missile”)

Grumble

Watering garden pots again
we all grumble we need rain,
but if and when the rain does come
still we’ll grumble, wanting sun.

Reality

Home from sunny Spain,
back to reality –
and rain!

Merry-go-Round

Sun up, sun down,
the merry-go-round of days
turns faster and faster —
or so it seems.
