Young Hands

England, Rusper – August 2019

Something old: we all know babies and the way they mesmerize us. Something new: each baby is unique. Something borrowed: he is his own boss, but for now he depends on his mother and family to be nurtured and safe. And his opa borrows him as a model, because he cannot object yet. Something blue: well, the sweater. This little boy is a treasure and brings so much happiness and love.

The theme for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #58 is ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’. For more information on how to join the Lens-Artists Photo Challenges, click here for details.

Broken

England, Rusper – August 2019

The theme for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #57 is ‘taking a break’. This is a bit of a cheeky entrance to that theme I know.

Blood on the Rooftops

England, Southwell – December 2018

Dark and grey, an English film, the Wednesday Play
We always watch the Queen on Christmas Day
Won’t you stay?

Blood On The Rooftops – Genesis
Dark and grey, an English film, the Wednesday Play
We always watch the Queen on Christmas Day
Won’t you stay?

Though your eyes see shipwrecked sailors you’re still dry
The outlook’s fine though Wales might have some rain
Saved again.

Let’s skip the news boy (I’ll make some tea)
The Arabs and the Jews boy (too much for me)
They get me confused boy (puts me off to sleep)
And the thing I hate – Oh Lord!
Is staying up late, to watch some debate, on some nation’s fate.

Hypnotised by Batman, Tarzan, still surprised!
You’ve won the West in time to be our guest
Name your prize!

Drop of wine, a glass of beer dear what’s the time?
The grime on the Tyne is mine all mine all mine
Five past nine.

Blood on the rooftops – Venice in the Spring
Streets of San Francisco – a word from Peking
The trouble was started – by a young Errol Flynn
Better in my day – Oh Lord!
For when we got bored, we’d have a world war, happy but poor

So let’s skip the news boy (I’ll go make that tea)
Blood on the rooftops (too much for me)
When old Mother Goose stops – they’re out for 23
Then the rain at Lords stopped play
Seems Helen of Troy has found a new face again.
