Scenes from the Seafront: Sea Foam and more…

Sea Foam

By Day
Grandma’s lace doilies scattered throughout a breathing Daliesque scene.

By Night:
Amorphous clusters
Bubble bath overflowing onto a pebble beach
from a sea roaring
as a crowd when the home team scores

Afternoon Sky

Sky split by a line of grey cloud
clear blue on one side
aqua on the other
and there, over there in the west,
a hint of pink-tinged grey.

Do the fish bleed?

25 fisherman
shelters and rods
line the shore
headlamps dotting the pitch black night
as bait is attached to hooks
which wait their turn
to lure a catch.
“It’s a competition,” he tells me.
“£10 in, the fisher who scores
the most
wins.”

It’s a catch and release game
the fish being too small to fry
each fisher shows the baby to the fisher next door
who confirms
yes indeed, a fish was caught on that one’s line,
reeled in and displayed,
then tossed back to sea
(complete with what must be
a very sore throat.)

Methinks it’s a cruel sport.
Some disagree.

  • Turnip Pie the Spanish-Way (not)
    I was invited to a multi-national potluck supper, and was brain dead with what to make.  When that happens, I usually fall back on Spanish Tortilla de Patates, but I had yellow turnips in my fridge – not potatoes.  I’ve…Read more ›
  • Leeks ‘N’ Lentils
      Oh Yeah! The simplicity of this dish allows the flavours of the leeks and shiitake mushrooms to blend beautifully. It needs nothing more than salt and freshly ground pepper.  I thought about adding tumeric or fresh herbs, but loved…Read more ›
  • Today’s Whole Foods+
    Just like you, I used to cringe at the idea of  meal replacement shakes.   If anyone suggested them to me, I’d wrinkle my nose in disgust and say: “I only eat whole foods.” I only ate whole foods till I…Read more ›
