Wordle: Past Magic

The mists of time swirl and clear And we find ourselves in a long-gone year At a point in time where stories began Origins of legends that have for centuries ran As rain lashes and chilled winds howl Wild animals circle that were born to prowl Kept from the cave by thin rings of fire Their tenacity to wait something to admire Within the safety … Continue reading Wordle: Past Magic

Double Wordle: Wings and Claws

My feathered friends and I like to sit and laugh, At the exploits of the clot, Mr Jinx the cat He thinks we don’t see him as he follows us Then decides with a sigh And a tail’s swish enough’s enough He’d chase us around Planet Earth If his while it was mostly worth… And he wasn’t dizzy from spinning As betwixt and beyond we’d … Continue reading Double Wordle: Wings and Claws

Wordle: New Valentine

Her prayers had been answered… ‘Though Cupid’s soldiers had misheard And instead of the body that she dreamed of Stood before her something she did love Large brown eyes to melt her heart of stone Wet nose and mouth chewing a bone A small furry bundle carved to perfection ‘He’ll open doors’, she thought in reflection Fingernails painted with nowhere to go She said, “Looks … Continue reading Wordle: New Valentine

Natural Beauty: Fossils

Fossil Inspired, anyhow. Today’s #WORLDWATERCOLORGROUP watercolour has been inspired by the Asteroceras Obtusym, otherwise known as the Obtuse Star Ammonite, which I’m taking to be a well-known fact. According to Wikipedia, this is an extinct species of cephalopod of the Ammonite sub-class. They were carnivores, nektonic at that. These fast-moving nektonic carnivores lived around the Jurassic period, around 189-196 million years ago. And their evidence … Continue reading Natural Beauty: Fossils

The Rainforests of Cheshire

I went exploring earlier today, and at one point I thought I’d strayed into a rainforest somewhere. The mist was settling, and a fine rain had began to fall. It was very fresh, but even with the mist it didn’t feel all that cold. I took a few snaps here and there, as I usually do, on my mobile phone, and then transferred them to … Continue reading The Rainforests of Cheshire

Santa’s Flight

A few days before Christmas, Father Christmas decided to try out his new one-man flight device, with unfortunate consequences. Fox Wood was his chosen setting, and all of the foxes came out to see what all the kerfuffle was about. They gathered around Santa, as he flicked the switch on his nifty handheld flight-suit remote control to power up the suit. He then clicked the … Continue reading Santa’s Flight

Did you spot the Lake Dragon?

Smiling and swimming by the Lady I didn’t. Not until after the post was posted yesterday, that is. I really do not know how I missed it – not taking in the full picture, I suppose: Look; it’s clearly there: There will be more. I’m sure of it! After a short break, I’m having another attempt at a run of Six Word Saturday posts. Click … Continue reading Did you spot the Lake Dragon?

Lakeside Guardians

I’ve been walking around the Lake again today. With all the changes going on Seasonal-wise, I was quite surprised to find myself back on a cool Summer’s Day. I made it my mission to search for the Spirits of the Trees or the Lakeside Guardians, and to photograph them through my trusty mobile phone. I do have a camera, but my mobile is so much … Continue reading Lakeside Guardians

Keeping Legends Living

As time is a little short, I have several fine, new and wondrous folk following my blog, and I have posts to post if I want to reach my target of 2,000 posts by New Year’s Eve, I’ve taken the decision to use a shortcut this evening, and repost a little legend I shared back in 2012. Hopefully my long time followers have forgotten this … Continue reading Keeping Legends Living

Harrumph! Groan. Mutter. Grumble. Gripe.

I’m feeling stressed, and my skin is showing it. I’m feeling tired, and my eyes are showing it. I’m feeling achy, and my movements are showing it. I’m feeling rushed, and everything I do is showing it. And because everything is showing how I’m feeling, I’m feeling ratty. Grrr. I mean squeeeeeeeak. So… I think I want a job cleaning mirrors. It’s something I could … Continue reading Harrumph! Groan. Mutter. Grumble. Gripe.
