Lost Post

Today’s posted post
Is a post at a cost
As today’s intended post
Was a post that I lost
So today’s posted post
Has its wires crossed
As I try to make the most
Of the memory I’d forgot

Today’s posted post
Resembles does it not
A feather-brained host
Who in his journal didn’t jot
The idea for the post
That came all bright and hot
From a dream that he can boast
Although remembers not a lot

The story of the post
The old one that I sought
Now looks like a ghost
And not as clear as I thought
The new post that I host
Is terrible and fraught
With discombobulated prose
And odd length lines that support

So today’s posted post
Is a post but not the post
That should have been the post
For today’s posted post
Most of the post
Isn’t even in this post
As the post that was the post
Is, like the plot, well and truly loast

Emergence of Colour

You may remember a post back in April I published, ‘Success’, where I mentioned that I’d sowed a few seeds and planted a few bulbs, and all with me not being very green-fingered at all.

Well today, I’d like to post a little update. This is how those seedlings look now:

The above photos were all taken on 3rd June 2017, and some shoots are still coming through. I haven’t the foggiest what the plants are, although I seem to remember gladioli and sunflowers being amongst the mix. I think the tall leafy ones are gladioli, although that is what I think and I have been known to be wrong.

When I looked at them on 9th June 2017, I noticed some tiny petals had appeared on a few of the plants. Even with this clue I’ve no idea what they are, but I’m just pleased that something has actually grown for me! We had some strong winds this last week, and a few of the plants are a little worse for wear right now, but they’re still there. We may be seeing some more colour soon. For that, however, we shall have to wait and see.

Abstract

To me, using a mobile phone to take photographs allows me to experiment with totally different objects from a variety of different angles. I like getting in close, and trying to take an image through the object if possible. It isn’t the subject on the other side of the object that’s important, but how it appears through the object. Debbie’s One-Word photo challenge for this week is ‘Abstract’ (which I’m pleased to be re-joining after a couple of weeks away), and the following photos are all of the Living Room here in the Mansion, taken through a blue paperweight. I feel like I’m underwater when I look at them, surrounded by currents and bubbles, and yes, Whalesong… and being Piscean that feels very comfortable indeed (apart from the fact that in real life I don’t like being submerged in water – most abstract!)
