An early morning colonoscopy

Standard

Monday 24th June

An early morning

Colonoscopy

Drive to Exeter

For endoscopy

.

Not too exciting

But necessary

Conscious sedation

Pain, momentary

.

An alien blob found

Polypectomy

A snip with calipers

Just get out of me!

.

Appointment was made

Another C. T.

It’s just to make sure

My bowel is polyp free

.

Remembering you

My precious Angel son

The Silver Ball

Standard

Saturday 22nd June

.

Throwing the silver ball

Fun and games for all

Rolling through the streets

Reflecting all it meets

An age-old tradition

An artist’s commission

Gallery of the Tate

Attention to create

.

Unsure what you would’ve made of this

Probably given it a miss

Content to follow far behind

Wandering off, if so inclined

.

The Tate and the Silver Ball More information

Thinking of you sweetheart

Treasured Angel son

The Silver Ball rolling down the road

Across a junction

Up and over the wall

And into Barnoon cemetery

Reflecting everything in it’s path

The twin chapels overlooking Porthmeor Beach

Half an hour later it was rolling across the harbour

Luckily it was low tide!

Boat on the sands

Standard

Friday 21st June

.

Dipping forward

Somewhat awkward

Off kilter slightly

Needs putting rightly

Boat on the sands

High and dry, stands

Wait for the tide

Then off you glide

.

Frank on a yacht

Liked it a lot

Just carefree days

Beneath sun’s rays

On the high seas

With a warm breeze

Holiday fun

Second to none

.

Remembering the good times

Sweet Angel son

Frank loving his yachting holidays with my father

Anchoring at high tide, the owner of the yacht didn’t know he was directly over a large dip in the sand, forcing the boat to tip forwards. Only when the tide receded did the angle of the mast seem way off vertical.

Stuck in the middle

Two of St. Ives’ gig rowing boats

Your light

Standard

Wednesday 19th June

.

Your light will always shine

Within this heart of mine

As the stars above align

.

Your memories so fine

Walking in the sunshine

Darling Angel devine

Love you forever

Forget you never

Always together

Forever and ever

Beloved Angel son

Wings in the sky

Grey clouds begin to clear

Beautifully blue over Porthmeor

Lost within thought

Standard

Tuesday 18th June

.

Lost within thought

Such love you brought

Your smile, I sought

Memories caught

The fight was fought

But left distraught

Your life cut short

.

Love you forever

My darling Angel son

So grey and drizzly ☔

The turn of the tide

Granite buildings reflected in the water

Peeking round the corner

Of my mind

Smiling cheekily

Awakening the subconscious

Of my dreams

Standing there

On an imaginary path

Called Memory Lane

My darling Angel son

Love you forever sweetheart

Fluffy clouds above the harbour

Swirls and puffs over Porthmeor Beach

Saturday afternoon at the beach

Could do with warming up a bit 🏖️
