Down At The Boat

Published August 11, 2017 by Libby

I’m still trying to get to grips with the promised ‘Simply Elfje’ e-book. Unfortunately life in general has been getting in the way, throwing a few bricks at me lately and this has hampered progress. Trust me, it will come.

In the meantime I would like to share a new Elfje Sequence that I have today posted on my other blog, “By the Wobbly Dum-Dum Tree”.

Down At The Boat

Morning.
The marina
comes to life.
Calm waters belie increased
activity.

Martins
twittering, flittering
around the boats,
among the rigging, playing
catch.

Hardly
a breath
of wind, barely
a ripple disturbs the
water.

Decks
wet with
overnight dew. Drying
sun beams down, set
fair.

Weekend Away

Published February 2, 2015 by Libby

(An Elfje series)

White
snow falls.
Is there enough
to build a snowman?
No.

Icy
Arctic blast,
snow, sleet; biting
rain washes snow away.
Gone.

Wind
roars through
the rigging; an
angry beast out for
blood.

In
the Marina,
on board the boat,
keeping warm. No sailing
today.
