Discovery

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Thursday: Discovery

Laying there
upon the sea floor
exposed by tides
not alone
with the rest
of her kind
a chance
discovery
Look, I say
there…..
can you see?
Now encrusted
with age
she tells tales
of long ago
of friends
long gone
of battles
and life
now in her
final resting place
she says
look at me.

Rose

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Friday: Rose

So many ideas for Rose that Steph proposed but I think I’ll just go with the fabulous flower that is the Rose and maybe sneak in a surprise Rose.

Here at the farm

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Thursday: Farm

My property is not really a farm. Over the years there has been horses, cattle, sheep, geese, ducks, goats, vegetable gardens, fruit trees and of course chooks. Nowadays I just have Australian Native Trees that grow all by themselves without much work from me. There is about one-third of the property that has been conserved with a Native Vegetation Conservation Agreement. I was wondering if I had many photos of the past and almost all of them are on film. One day I’ll do the hunt and scan of the old photos, but today is not that day.

Here is a selection of what I can find from the digital camera.

The road to where

The word prompt from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Road
The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Lost

Is this the road?
Should we come this way
Let’s stop and see
That sign, over there
But I can’t find that
On the map
Don’t worry
Look at the flowers
Don’t worry
Stupid map
We’ll find it
Perhaps another sign
We’ve stopped
We’ve come this way
Is this the road?
