Five Days, Five Photos………. Day 1

I have seen similar posts from other bloggers pop up in my reader and now the gauntlet has been thrown to me!
Oh my.
Whilst I don’t usually participate in nominations (nothing personal, just a ‘me’ thing), I do post something every day, so I thought, OK, just this once.
I’m slightly confused though as to whether it should be my own photos and if each post should be a poem, as going backwards there is some variation of title.

So, without further ado, here is my first effort, a poem to go with one of my photos.

resident heronMr Heron was slightly miffed,
He’d had it on good authority
That there would be a pile of fish
At the end of this very jetty.

A lazy bird, he’d long worked out
There was no need to swim,
Why make an effort, when he could wait
For the fish to come to him.
Now the opportunity
Had come for him to steal
The remnants of someone else’s catch
To provide his evening meal.

Mocking him from the water’s edge,
He was dismayed to find
His ‘Heavenly Plaice’ was the name of a boat,
Not fish of the edible kind.

Thanks Johnny Ojanpera  for the challenge.

The rules are as follows: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”

My nominee for today is Kate Views and Mews by Coffee Kat 🙂
(hope you don’t mind)

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
