One day at the car wash

The Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge: The Car Wash

I know
of some
whose experience
has been glum


among the
whirling brushes
soap suds
water rushes


the motion
dark and light
in the car wash
maybe a fright

yellow and red
rollers spin
up and down
stop and begin

Water cascades
down the screen
air blows
once more clean

Also for Jez’s Water, Water everywhere #42

Be Kind

It’s day one of Becky’s Square Photo Challenge for October: Kindasquare

I just have come from Debbie’s post at Travel With Intent and am rather over awed at her post Kinda Confusing

I have a simple start which is something we should all aspire to

A Red Fantasy

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Red
Franks Tuesday Photo Challenge: Fantasy

A chance to combine two photo challenges.
What can be more colourful and take you into a fantasy world than the Lismore Lantern Parade.

The lanterns come by eliciting ohhhhs and ahhhs from the crowd.
