skin check

Thursday 31st March 

A six month skin check
At dermatology
The NHS doctors
Looking after me
Sneaky melanoma
Kept in check carefully
Attending appointments
So, vigilance is key

Love you both so much
Treasured sons
So cold this morning, with an icy wind
Driving home from the hospital in Exeter
Back into Cornwall

Flying high
Touching the sky

You're nearby

You occupy
Love multiply
Precious Starman
You're nearby

Reasons why
You're my guy

Mother’s Day

Sunday 27th March 

Our Mother's Day
Lunch at the beach
Such excellent food
Different plates for each

Love you both so much
Treasured sons
A welcome drink
Our table overlooking the beach
Chocolate tarte with Cornish clotted cream
Our view to the Island
Towards Man’s Head
Sunshine over the harbour
A beautiful day
Our shadows in the water
My brother, mum, younger sister and me. Singapore, 1968
My lovely Mum
Mum, walking up Porthmeor Hill
Me, and my boys ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’–

Flying kites

Saturday 26th March 

Many flying kites
Up on the Island
Colours soaring high
Shaped like a diamond
Endless blue skies
To the horizon
So very windy
On thermals rising

Love you both so much
Precious sons
Quite breezy on Porthmeor Beach today
We’re off to the Island
Back Road West
A strange creature!
Cornwall Kite Flyers
Looking up towards the Chapel
A purple monster
Great colours sweeping into Porthgwidden Beach
Looking down from the top of the Island
Across the bay to the Towans
Soaring seagulls in the harbour
The wind blowing straight into the harbour

Those blue skies

Friday 25th March 

Those blue skies
Make me smile
Warms my skin
For a while
Pain dissolves
Without trial
Gentle breeze
So tactile

Love you both so much
Precious sons
Porthmeor Beach this afternoon
Low tide
Sunbathing in a sheltered corner
Spring blossom in Trewyn Gardens
A very vocal robin singing to us on the way home!

Seems more like summer

Thursday 24th Marchย  

Seems more like summer
People on the beach
Blue skies forever
As far as the eyes can reach
Two jets flying past
Their engines do screech

Love you both so much
Precious sons
Bunkers Hill; a narrow, cobbled route on the way to Porthmeor Beach
Surf School is ready for students
A fabulous day
A beautiful afternoon on Porthmeor Beach
Royal Navy hawks from RNAS Culdrose fly over Cornwall in a farewell flight

Warm, spring like weather

Wednesday 23rd March 

Warm, spring like weather
Wandering around's a pleasure
Good to have a day of leisure
Lifting the soul's a treasure

Love you both so much
Beloved sons
Low tide at Porthmeor Beach
Smeaton’s Pier and the lighthouse
The harbour beach
