I really like finding images that link to Debbie’s one word photo themes, but in abstract ways. Debbie’s theme this week is ‘Arch’, and at first I struggled to think of anything that I could use to contribute. I was all prepared to head deep into the Cheshire Countryside, to Twemlow, where there’s viaduct with many arches, when I suddenly remembered my walk through another … Continue reading Arch

A Brand New Pair of Jeans

A Long Six Word Saturday post. Sitting comfortably? Then I shall begin. This week, I treated myself to a new pair of jeans. I finished work on Thursday, ahead of my week off, had something to eat, and then went out shopping. The journey to the shop was fine. The roads weren’t as busy as I expected them to be, although there were queues at … Continue reading A Brand New Pair of Jeans

The Pinocchio Effect

Decades ago when I was just a wee boy, knee high to a grasshopper, and in total awe of everything that was around me, I made a monumental decision. OK, I wasn’t exactly knee high, getting on for eight, nine or possibly ten years old, and the awesomeness of some things had started to shine a little less brightly thanks to a few ‘others’ who … Continue reading The Pinocchio Effect


Through the mists, the storms, the turbulence of time They have stood Mysterious relics of a bygone age Backbone, support and strength For themselves and others Created by ancient hands As a message perhaps For hope Togetherness Connectedness Solitude and Solace Celebration of Solstice And an offering of the land From the land To the land Hands and minds long gone Stories long forgotten Legends … Continue reading Megalith


Debbie’s one-word photo theme this week sounds easy, but it is a particularly tricky one. Fire. I was debating at first whether to photograph a lit candle, and focus on the fire within the flame, but I thought that would be a little obvious. Then, I remembered the photos I took of one of the glorious sunsets just before Christmas. The Sun itself is a … Continue reading Fire

Fanfare Sounds as Six Words Return!

Yes! Six Word Saturday is back! Debbie, the hostess of the Sunday one word photo prompt challenge, is now also hosting Six Word Saturday, and I’m pleased to participate in this again. 🌞🌜🌞 So much easier than six syllables. I took myself away from Six Word Saturday a few months ago, and replaced it with my own, slightly more challenging Six Syllable Sat’day, and that … Continue reading Fanfare Sounds as Six Words Return!

The Sparrow Sings

A gentle breeze And rustling Spring leaves Chirps from within As the Sparrow sings Storm clouds gather And raindrops patter And with a flutter of wings The Sparrow still sings Turbulence and angst Rockets and tanks Yet through all the din The Sparrow STILL sings Differences resolved And as peace now echoes Carried upon the wind Is the song the Sparrow sings (Images from Pixabay) Continue reading The Sparrow Sings
