oceans full of fish
mysterious depths unknown
man invents the boat

horses

horses were too small to carry humans
we bred them to grow
we rode them and they pulled our wagons and plows
we replaced them
now when we ride them
we’re just horsing around

earth’s skies clear a bit
the warming oceans simmer
my own house needs work

nature’s water flows
in rivers but sometimes will
come out and drown us

life sprouts where it will
greenery festoons the lost

In Memoriam

#CCC49

What is the carving of a snorkler doing in our back yard in Thorpe Hamlet?

Sadly, it is a memorial to a young fellow swept away from Whitlingham Country Park during the flooding of the River Yare back in the day.

Oh, youth! So innocent! So foolish! Diving for the odd penny in the midst of a veritable typhoon! Sic transit vita nostra.

quiet country stream
where minnows swim below me

sun through autumn leaves
glowing gold honey crimson
chapel reminds me
