100 Word Wednesday: The sky is blue

Image by Bikurgurl

The sky is blue, which is so true
The sun is bright, we’re all alright
The sea is cool, better than the pool
Zoe and Yanna playing, Beng and Amy swimming
Eating adobo and rice, Zoe’s hungry, she ate twice
Packed lunch from hotel, made us peckish from the smell
Lovers paddling on the boat, kayaking and banana float
Island hopping is quite fun, everything’s nice with the sun
Splashing water to each other, look at the colour- it’s azure

Blue sky
Friends at sea
Swimming and eating
Island hop
Like creatures of the water
One fine, lovely day

100 Word Wednesday: Week 75 – We surf and wonder all these years

Image by Bikurgurl

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Hello Great North Road” by Robert Sullivan: wonder, surf, travel, rocking, defy, tucked, years, cars, greatness, smile, whipping, road

We surf and wonder all these years
Working and rocking with smile
Tucked in our rooms, trying our best
A tough road but we have made it

Defying late nights and hard work
We surf and wonder all these years
First, whipping and frustration
Like travelling, we have arrived

With cars, buses and bicycles
The greatness of it all, we’re there
We surf and wonder all these years
Let’s celebrate with our loved ones

Happy on this convocation
We have all made it, hip, hip, hurray
We’re looking forward to a bright future
We surf and wonder all these years*

100 Word Wednesday: Week 74 – Our lives in prose

Image by Bikurgurl

I spend years breathing and writing
Writing in the spirit of the place
Place on earth that is so sacred
Sacred to me and my neighbour’s grace

In this quiet neighbourhood I grew
Grew up to be prosperous and kind
Kind of digging the past and listening
Listening to lessons, keep them in mind

Bear with us and all our antics
Antics we like, acts we tolerate
Tolerate as we live in peace
Peace, eccentricity, as we await

People come and go
Go to where the wind blows
Blows all the leaves in autumn
Autumn and our lives in prose*

100 Word Wednesday: Week 73 – I am sailing on dinghy boat

Image by Bikurgurl

I am sailing on dinghy boat
With a mast powered by the wind
I have fun, hope it stays float
Twenty five knots and a crosswind

Need to learn some racing tactics
The sails, the trim and all the mix
Side to side balance of the boat
An elegant sport to note

I keep sailing until I’m old
Feeling with the wind and water
When everything is in controlled
Singing a song for all drifters

I am sailing across the seas
With the birds up high and the breeze
Sailing is life or death for me
Challenge definitely with glee

100 Word Wednesday: Week 72 – Men of valour

Image by Bikurgurl

Men of valour and courage going to war
Every generation, there are some reasons
Of why men waged wars against each other
We send them there, still boys and girls
Not knowing whether they’d still come back
The experience they’ve got, we don’t know
And when they come back, are they still whole?
Our heroes, our loved ones, their sacrifices
And so we remember them
We appreciate what they’ve done
To our countries and to our freedom
Wars are ugly, wars are unfair
But they are necessary sometimes
Let’s just hope that peace come
Lest we forget, lest we forget

100 Word Wednesday – The joy of summer

Image by Bikurgurl

water moved softly round my toes
and sultry air caressing me
wispy clouds across
boats rise and fall in the lock
one lazy hazy day
sea lay without a ripple
cupped my hands and drank water
drips falling from lips
ah, the sweet taste of heaven
cool and refreshing
rough winds shake the darling buds
more lovely and temperate
palm trees swaying
clouds scudding across the sky
heaven knows why
have picnics by the seabed
open sunlit grass, cloudless
splashing with the waves
friends waiting for the sunset
the joy of summer
light of the silvery moon
never ending stories

100 Word Wednesday: Week 70 – Stories worth sharing

Image by Bikurgurl

Stories worth sharing, a game
String of events, we proclaim
Simple, rattle, all beats the same
All in a frame, all in a frame

List of books to read and enjoy
Fasten our seatbelts, such a joy
Still sometimes we get annoy
And boy ahoy, and boy ahoy

Streak and beam of light, we hope
Like seams under the microscope
And when it sheens we can all cope
Walk on tightrope, walk on tightrope

When we finish a story
We go out swim in the sea
Meet a friend for a coffee
We feel so free, we feel so free*
