Another test of our flimsy cerebral hemispheres for Tess's weekly prompts for Magpie Tails. This one MAG233 shows a lonely ship steaming out to sea. What will this conjure, I wonder. Will let you know when I start writing.
Yell Sounds, Shetland, 2014, by R.A.D. Stainforth
Shetland stationed ship 'sets sail', steaming silently seaward, steering south, skipping several submerged shipwreck sites, slicing smooth settled shimmering spacious salty seas.
Stormy sunset skies shine serenely, shadowing shady sloping sun soaked shores, somehow silhouetting spectacular segmented silver sea/sky systems.
Surrounding shores, Sweinna Stack, Sim Skerry, Sand Skerry, Samphrey show stupendous scenery, speaking surreptitious secret sagas, saluting steaming ship.
Sunbeams scatter, screaming seagulls swoop, sea salmon shoals swim, self satisfied scruffy sailors sing, shrewd skipper steers ship safely, spying shingled saturated shellfish shores.
She sells sea shells on the sea shore.
The shells she sells are sea shore shells, I'm sure.
I was 'sunk' on this one for a long time!
Why not have a go at Magpie Tales . . . . it's fun, that's why I do it.
But you may be a poet and don't know it.
