One day in Seoul

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Spruiker

On day walking around the less touristy places in Seoul, we headed down a street where a lot of people were going so we tagged along. It wasn’t long before we came across this huge shopping centre. Outside was a spruiker trying to get people inside and to the particular store he was advertising.

He was quite comical and whatever he said to the passing shoppers made them smile or laugh.

I didn’t realise that this was an Australian word. It is often more likely to be used in carnivals where they try and get you to go into their particular tent or sideshow. Sometimes these shows are not exactly what the spruiker shouts to the crowd.

Anyway back to South Korea

In the flower

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Monday: Seed

Seeds on long grass stalks

Multiple grass seeds at sunset

Seeds are for nourishment

Seeds wait for the right time to blow in the wind

Lots of seeds to pick from for lunch

Dwarf Eastern Green Tree Frogs don’t eat seeds but wait for those who do

Some seeds are quite big like the ones from a Silk Tree

Other seeds are ready for harvest

Sheds I have known

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Saturday: The Old Shed

In my life
there are sheds
Sheds with purpose
some look old
some look new

Some poles
some nails
even wire
to tie them together
These I have built
these are
Sheds I have known

Now a shed
used to be
my house
a home
for Old Smoky
who gets me around
my place.

A shed where
the chooks
used to live
filled with memories
too many names to list

The two story shed
built with poles and wire
a home for
the tractor
the car
and sundry
odds and ends

Here is where
the tools
and machines,
the mowers
the chainsaws live,
once a Satin Bowerbird
built a bower
on the roof

I love my sheds
most have been
repurposed
tidied up
but shall always be
sheds I have known
