Details – Photo Challenge


This is a model boat HMS Bounty that Him Indoors made. It took him a couple of years to build it, but his patience and creativity paid off. He worked on it meticulously, thought about ways to bend the wood, sewed the sails and all the other details. I admired him for it. It kept him busy, especially when the weather wasn’t good so he could work in the cellar. Well done, Him Indoors!

Two years ago, we gave him this kit for HMS Victory and he loved it. He started working on it. It’s a bigger project than the HMS Bounty but I’m sure he loves the challenge. He’s halfway there. Good luck, Him Indoors!

Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu #84 Back In Time “Carpe Diem Full Circle”

One warm summer breeze
A princess sat on her own
Under a willow

Oasis of calm
As leaves of palm trees swaying
Camels stop to drink

Vista of cruise ship
With snow on the horizon
I see a rainbow

The yellow rapeseed
Offers them to the shrine
A whispered prayer

Somewhere Over the Rainbow


Words: rainbow, lemon, bloom, dare, fly, why

somewhere over the rainbow blue birds fly
and the blooms in our apple trees are there
unexplained things, would I dare to ask why?
lemon trees are so pretty everywhere
I’m Sagittarian, he’s a Gemini
With his shirt and tie, he’s a debonair
I dream, he dreams, forever we are one
And for us the most vital thing is fun

The Colour of the Rainbow


the rainbow of love
a wonderful sensation
love is all around
we just have to look for it
we can spread it like the wind

exquisite colours
rainbow in a butterfly
spins with the wind
fluttering, flickering, too
showing its lovely colours

pureness of the heart and soul
wholesomeness and awe
love is in kind deeds, warm heart
it is also in sharing

rain gives us blessing
multi-coloured rainbow’s out
promising some hope
gold at the end of rainbow
don’t lose hope, we’re nearly there

At The End Of The Rainbow

(5) Words: | TEST | POTION | MUSE | OWN | SIGN |


The Eco/The Echo – Word count (3 – 5 – 4 – 6 – 6 – 3) A four stanza poem

Muse is here
Giving us a positive sign
Of love and faith
A potion needed for all troubles
Testing mankind if we can handle
Our own destiny

Test of time
Sign of friendship and courage
Muse is always there
Giving support to those who asked
Helping us to choose our priorities
Potion of hope

Is it a remedy?
For all the heartache and tribulation?
When there’s nothing else?
When we thought it’s the end?
And no one notice our sorrow?
Let’s not despair

Don’t lose hope
It’s always there at the side
Let’s seek and find
Gold at the end of rainbow
Light at the end of tunnel
Go grub it

I Can Sing a Rainbow


I can sing a rainbow
Woke up, sun’s bright yellow
Happy to start the day
Swam in a blue pool
Splashing in the Jacuzzi
Ah! heavenly white foam
Went to the market
And bought all my greens
Not to forget my red meat
Silver fish, orange shrimps
Blue stilton cheese and crackers
Met my friend for lunch
I wore blue jeans and black shirt
Had green tea and wanton soup
Chocolate and strawberry ice-cream
We chatted about our colourful lives
Went back on my bike, lost my purple cap
Oh well, I can still sing a rainbow
Have a lovely day everyone!
