These are her boys

These two boys were my female cats kittens, they were rehomed together and now they are about two and a half years old. I occasionally see photos of them, I do miss them. They are like larger versions of their mother. Both boys are really handsome. I wish I’d been able to keep them, and their two sisters that went to another home.

Sea and sand

IMG_20191007_001713_925

Build your castles on the sand and they might be washed away. Water creeps or washes in. It sinks down under the sand. The beach quakes. The rocks fall….

What is sand? Silica, ground up rock and shells. Sand can be melted into glass, a solid once liquid. Fused in heat either through vulcanism, lightening (did you know when lightening strikes damp sand it can melt a branching path through it, like plant roots?). Humans also build kilns and create glass to be blown or fused or slumped.

The sea washes or crashes in to a beach. Longshore drift pushes sand and rock sideways and along a coast. In a severe storm sand can be stripped off a beach completely, and yet it can equally be washed back again.

The world warms, water rises, sand washes away, cliffs crumble, castles crumble.

Life changes and evolves.

Oil and water

A thin film

Rainbow bright

Smeared on tarmac,

Immiscable,

Like oil and water

They cannot be mixed.

A molecule thick

Sliver of light.

Oil floated on water

Dropped and dripped.

A subtle play of shimmers

A gleam of glimmers,

A ray of sunlight,

Surface spread out like a pancake.

Pollution is washed away

Down drains, into soil.

The colour of oil…..
