The first Ragtag Daily Prompt from Emily: Return

Every year
the water’s filled
with splashes
with gasps
from the crowd
who line
the coast
hoping for a glimpse
of majestic
Humpback whales
as they return
to warmer waters
to calve
and mate
giving hope
of a new life
as they travel
giving pleasure
to people
who return
every year
to watch
and wait.

PS It’s my turn tomorrow for my first Ragtag Daily Prompt


The Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Fear

What did he do?
What made him do it?
The plane was in
the air
Followed by another
Was it his time
Did he fear what
he was going to do?

And then it was time
no time for fear
Go now!
Open the parachute
The exhilaration of floating
But then
the roar of the motor
The smell of exhaust
Suddenly amid the spirals
he was there
floating within the circles

It was time to descend
Flag unfurled
helping steer ground ward
He had done it
The faces looking upward
He was safe
He had no fear.

*If you look at the second photo, the second last spiral just below the plane, you can see a yellow dot of the parachutist

Remember when…..

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
Look, I say
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.
