Thursday 29th September 

Sometimes I just stop
And smile at the thought
Of you, your laughter
All the joy that brought

Love you both so much
Beloved sons
St Ives Harbour behind the red valerian
Much colder this morning


Tuesday 27th September 

All my many photographs
Make a precious storybook
Of times and moments in the past
I just flick through for a look

As I was capturing life
So as never to forget
Those memories last a lifetime
And there's no room for regret

That precious, sweet second
When all was fine and innocent
That's where I transport myself
There's really is no equivalent

Love you both so much
Treasured sons

The dark’ning sky

Monday 26th September 

Crisp, dancing leaves
Careening across the ground
Chased by the wind
Making a whistling sound

Those whipped-up waves
Cavorting up the beaches
Covering sand
Towards the farthest reaches

Cold, pinched faces
With hair flying awry
Out for a walk
Mindful of the dark'ning sky

Love you both so much
Precious sons
A chilly and blustery Porthmeor Beach
Going for a surf
Fast moving clouds
A choppy harbour
Incoming tide
Good breeze for kite surfing
White horses
Dark clouds and a little sun
Harbour waves
Becoming quite dark beyond the pier, but the sun lit up the catamaran


Sunday 25th September 

Everything looks the same
On the outside
All appears to be okay

But everything is different
On the inside
Some things are not okay

Love you both so much
Treasured sons

Billowing clouds

Saturday 24th September 

Billowing clouds
Much smaller crowds
Break in the rain
Cannot complain
Out for fresh air
Wind in your hair

Love you both so much
Precious sons
West Porthmeor Beach
Big, billowing clouds
Rain on the horizon
Choppy waves, with a north wind blowing
Hardy surfers and swimmers
The Island
Bright and sunny for a moment in the harbour
James Stevens No 10 lifeboat
Dark grey clouds over there; but sunshine here

A kiss in the sky

Friday 23rd September 

A kiss in the sky
My Angel on high
Left this world to fly
On clouds he does lie
Precious sweetie pie
I smile but I sigh
And try not to cry

Love you both so much
Treasured sons
One here, one there
West Porthmeor
Granite cliffs
Choppy waves
Lots of surfers and swimmers
Much calmer in the harbour
A few puffy clouds on the horizon
The three arches on Smeaton’s Pier
A kiss in the sky
My Angel on high
The kiss followed us home


Wednesday 21st September 

Halts your adventures
Overburdens imagination
Clouds your thoughts
Changes your path
Gives perspective

Love you both so much
Beloved sons
Walking down the hill to Porthmeor Beach
Looking towards Man’s Head
Good waves
Holidaymakers enjoying the beach
Sunny September
Harbour high tide
Quite busy in Kitty’s Corner
The slipway
