The summer world
floats in the lake
waves wash over

Went for a drive on the road near the sea 

Incredible body of water so blue and free

An amazing sight with all the boats in the distance

How lucky are we at this jewels existence.

Walking around the Souks in Morocco – live chickens being sold – its his turn.

I’ve been here a while now
Some of the chickens that were here before have left
Not much to do really just stand or sit
Sometimes people come and point at us
Often a man comes to the front and points at me
Food is ok
Would love to go for a walk
Here is the man again
The cage has been opened
I think it may be my turn
I am brought out of the cage and shown to the man
He nods and reaches for his pocket
Not sure what happens next but will let you know
The End

The Road

On the busy road going into town

Cars, lorries and people go up and down

Traffic lights temporarily halt the flow

Allowing people and their dog’s to go

The pub at the bottom is a popular hub

Small group outside as they flick the odd stub
