The Pelican who can

The inspirational quote from Debbies at Travel with Intent

Sob, heavy world
Sob as you spin,
Mantled in mist
Remote from the happy.
-W. H. Auden

Sob not elegant bird
Sob not as you fly,
Mantled in mist
Clothed in the joyous.

Sprout

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Sprout

Among the dead
dying flowers
a new bud
sprang to life
lighting the gloom
with a sense of renewal

The forest floor
tiny sprouts
wave their
tiny heads
seeking attention
sunlight
hope

Sturdy red
standing tall
calling all around
to witness
new life
a sense of purpose

Love in Space and Time

The inspirational quote from Debbie at Travel With Intent

Love is space and time measured by the heart
– Marcel Proust

I have read Debbies quote over and over for a couple of days.  Had some inspiration. Tried to find the image that my mind wanted to use to gather that inspiration into a post for you. I am experiencing photographers and writers block.

Our Moon
drifts in space
Our souls
drift in space
Those we love
are always
in our hearts.
The loves we had
lost in time.
The loves we have
are here
Our souls entwine
Our thoughts
drift in space
to kiss our Moon.

Junk

The word prompt from The Weekly Prompts: Junk

Once proud
travelling the streets.
Stopping when
the bell pinged
or a wave
from an arm.
Motoring along
filled
with laughter
chatting
silence.
Now it’s silence
occasionally
bird song
or a rustle
from an animal
passing by.
Discarded
Thrown aside
Once proud
now junk

The Aeroplane

It was an unexpected sight.
To see the aeroplane
on a frightening flight

What would happen next!
At the airshow the crowd
strained their necks.
190128_blog_challenge_three_aeroplane
Watching to see the aeroplane
spiral and turn.
Was the pilot insane.
plane_parachute_lismore air show_named_july 2018
In the sky he did twist
close to the ground
a wonder he missed.
plane_close_lismore air show_named_july 2018

Back safe on the runway
The pilot waved and smiled
to him, just another day

Voyager 2

The word prompt from Debbie at Travel with Intent: Voyager

I couldn’t make up my mind which photo to use for this photo challenge.
So here is Voyager 2

190127_blog_challenge_voyager_sculpture_man_clouds

He stood
wondering at the sea
The Man of Clouds.
The Voyager travelled
from a distant world
The Man of Clouds.
People stopped
people stared
The Man of Clouds.
People saw shapes
saw hands
The Man of Clouds.
They marvelled
at his voyage
The Man of Clouds.
He saw his kin
floating over the sea
The Man of Clouds.
He stood
wondering at the sea
The Man of Clouds.

Voyager 1

The word prompt from Debbie at Travel with Intent: Voyager
190127_blog_challenge_voyager_sculpture_boat

They came by sea.
Their boat
adorned with silver.
Their oars
rusted,
useless.
The voyagers
set ashore
never to return.
Their boat
shipwrecked
useless
to voyage
no more.
