Southwold I love you
Southwold (Suffolk).
 
 Dear Southwold

 How I love to visit you,
 To stand barefoot,
 On your bright yellow sandy beaches,
 To stand and admire your pretty streets,
 Your glowing white Lighthouse,
 and your quirky Pier.
 
 Your cottage homes

Premium Member The lamp was quiet
He fell so broke our lamp, a sphere of stone
Made by potters on the Suffolk Coast
The lamp was silent, it was he who groaned

I was not angry, though I may have moaned
I loved  our lamps but I loved him...Read More

A seaside town
Bright coloured chalets, (very dear !)
Stand close in military line,
Along the prom, beyond the pier
“NO CYCLING”, please, observe the sign.
The waves roll in with thunderous roar
To dash the pebbles on the shore.

Incongruous lighthouse in the town
Looks out above Edwardian tiles,
Across...Read More

Putting on harness
Standing tall and proud as Punch, Albert, my Suffolk, softens to receive his collar.
I lift the hames across his back,
throw over pad and traces, belts and chains,
while he stands like a scholar.
He has a generosity of spirit that shames me,...Read More

Memories on the breeze

The summer air was still, 'neath golden sky
where lively birdsong filled motionless trees
sun shied away while cirrus clouds passed by
air cooled and briefly birthed a subtle breeze.
The scent was fleeting, but I recognised
the petrol fumes mixed with newly mown grass

For business management,

At the University Campus Suffolk, 
Because she loves Boccia’s ground, 
That’s perfect for her in pairs:

Bit of fun for Gav from Ipswich
In Suffolk where the barley grows,
Its said that folks have seven toes, 
And 'round some parts of Sutton Hoo,
They've grown an extra finger too!
They're banjo players one and all, 
And tractor drivers but that's not all, 
They don't go far...Read More

Premium Member In East Anglia
Where the fields meet the sky,
Where ears of golden corn reach high
And winding tree-lined lanes pass by,

See the flatlands which stretch away
On a sunny, blue-sky day
With wind-blown, snow-white clouds at play.

Where sounds of Summer fill the air
And showers sprinkle water...Read More

Suffolk dawn
Desolate sea
between steel sky and dusky shore.
A sinister mist creeps in,
adds to the grey gloom.
Flat calm.
		Stillness.
			     Complete silence.

A seabird cries.
Shingle-rippling wavelets, bubble and make reply.
The gull continues his mournful song
evoking sea-lost souls. 
Waves,

Suffolk

We live in a little valley
once famous for cedar trees. 
The name is no longer a label
but celebrates the past
as do most places in this country.

It is a place with monuments
old but not ancient,
unkempt mansions that
cling to use,
solemnized as party...Read More

The trip
I am each stone tossed around,
each droplet of sea mixed in,
pounding each stone, churning, 
in time beating me smooth,
each impact, more homogenous,
trapped in the battle of land and sea,
an eternal ebb and flow,
crasshhh, another seamless brother,
broken in battle. Oh woe...Read More
