My first (and a triple) Haiku!
My favourite time of year is here, Spring. The weather is better, ever body seems that much happier. It’s a time of new beginnings, which has driven me on to trying something new. So here you have it, my first (triple) Haiku! I hope you like it 😀
Bumble-bees forever buzzing,
Clear skies all around,
The ground is full of colour,
Winter is no more.
A sea of new growth,
Animals spawning their young,
Life’s circle complete.
Here’s a Spring-y picture to finish things off!
It IS Easy Being Green!
Well this was an easy and difficult week for me choosing photo’s for the weekly challenge. Living in the country, the vast majority of my photos are of green-land. However that did mean I had to pick between an awful lot of photos!!
Atop of the Ferris Wheel I go,
The rain doesn’t deter the view on show,
Rooftops afar and up close spires,
I wish my eyes could see for miles,
Alas, times up, the wheel starts turning,
Goodbye Amsterdam, I’ll soon be returning.
Here are a couple of shots from last years trip to Amsterdam (More will be coming to the Gallery soon). Outside the Palace of Amsterdam was a small fair which had a selection of rides and stalls, including a Ferris Wheel, which was ideal for a few pictures. Most of the group that went aren’t overly … well let’s just say ‘crap with heights!’ So it wasn’t until towards the end of the holiday that we decided to conquer this mighty monster. Unfortunately this was one of the days the weather wasn’t on our side.
Apologies for my poor Poetry too!!
Weekly photo prompt – Shadows
When I’m at the beach I can’t resist getting out the camera or the phone and start snapping. I’ve posted this picture because it’s different from the norm of my photos, for one main reason; it wasn’t taken by me, I’m the one holding the sun 😀 I loved the silhouette and shadowed effect the sun gave, so much so that I had to be in the photo and get my friend to take it!
Solitude – the state or situation of being alone.
– lonely or uninhabited place.
The definitions you’d find on the Internet. For me I couldn’t disagree more. I spend most of my time in the company of others; I work in an office through the week and at night and weekends I am socialising with friends and family almost all of the time.
I may be alone when in solitude but I certainly do not find it lonely or subdued, in fact quite the opposite. When I’m alone it’s a great time for my mind to wander and start reflecting, reminiscing and analysing current, future and past events or situations. It’s almost the only time that I can find peace and tranquillity within myself.
Of course to spend an eternity in solitude would be quite dismal and depressing but in the circumstances of my life I do find it helps to assuage any grief or tension.
Standing on the edge of Camber beach, gathering my thoughts. One of my favourite spots for taking photos.
This place has offered me so much through the years; from romantic walks along the beach, different activities with sporting clubs, great days out with the guys and making many memories and new friends as a child.
It’s also a really good place to kick back, relax and have a bit of a re-evaluation of life!
If you’re ever in the area on a nice day I would highly recommend a visit, just be careful the sea is a dangerous place in these parts.

Cherry On Top
So this is one of my favourite pictures I’ve taken. “The cherry on top” if you will! This is a favourite for many reasons; Location, the sunset, the company (not present in the photo), the hidden meaning that not everything “is” as it is perceived (for instance, there is no lake, pond or even water in this picture. Just a quirky idea at the time) and the end of another day of making memories.
