Beneath the Pier

Cromer Pier, at the turn of the tide: 8th May 2018

Down to the shore I went, to find some pressable pieces.
A frond of seaweed that looked like a mat.
a short frayed length of plastic tat,
and a paper bag, with sand pressed in its creases.

Back in the studio with a length of card added
which was purposely multiple random hole splattered,
my imagination now churned and chundered:
what pleasing picture might I conjure?

Items displayed, I began the process:
Cut to size, cow-gum applied and dried,
Ink mixed and spread, card to print-guide.
Beneath the Pier: despite the stress, new off the press,
a seascape print, my graphic’s tutor to impress.

    Nice! I have a large lake, “Ontario” with beaches, boardwalks and leafy paths to explore, right on the southern edge of my City. You’re writing is inspiring me to explore those beauties, that as a child I used to adore. There are also 3 islands a short ride across the lake I think I should revisit. Could be a busy Summer 😊 Thank you for reminding me.
