River Trip 2016: Offenham Afternoon Siesta

It was so hot, I stripped off and decided to put my head down for a couple of hours.
I awoke just after three to find myself alone on board and contemplated the ceiling.

The inside of our boat is beech wood, and the grain is quite lovely.
I wrote this and took a picture. Hopefully you’ll see what I did:

Dancing forms around a tree,
Arms aloft, voices high,
Stretching they sway to the rhythm
Paying homage to the sky.
Mouths an ‘O’ as they chant,
Hips swinging to a basic tune,
Patterns in a grain of wood,
I see them…… but, can you?


Just in case your eyes need a hand

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
