Clearly Spring

The weather has been delightful before today – where we had a very short thunderstorm. I could have imagined it, it was that short, and we had some hail as well. These are a couple of plant life shots I took. I wanted to get the castle in the tree one as well, it wasn’t an “off-target” shot. I did try one with a Victorian lamp-post as well, but that didn’t come out too well.

I hope you’ve had a good weekend and have a good week ahead.

Daily Prompt: Mr. Sandman

What kind of sleeper are you? Do you drop off like a stone and awaken refreshed, or do you need pitch black and silence to drift off to dream?

Awake by dayKnight
Asleep by night
The Sandman comes
To start a fight

Dreams of cars
Dreams of bikes
Dreams of swords
Dreams of pikes

gothicloveDreams of roads
Dreams of sea
Dreams of you
Dreams of me

Sandman comes
And sprinkles dust
Gives dreams of love
And sometimes lust

Running racesNightmare
Triumphs had
Suddenly changing
From good to bad

Nightmare horrors
Death and pain
Molten lava
Acid rain

Running hard
But nowhere fast
Looking down
Legs in casts

Dantes Peak 5Sandman laughs
Sandman whoops
Sandman has you
Jumping hoops

Sandman leaves
As night time ends
He never tires
Or makes new friends

Awake with a start
From alarms and chimes
Hopefully Sandman will
Miss you next time
