WPC: On the Edge

on-the-edge-2

poised before

an expansive ocean of

stilted maturity

presenting youthful enthusiasm

whilst all outdated dictates

constraining adulthood

are deposited

abandoned

on the shoreline far below

a life of graft replaced by

a fun-filled existence

happiness

becoming the prime objective

on-the-edge-4

These pictures (which were taken at Tintagel, in Cornwall, UK) were nearly posted a few days ago for the Weekly Photo Challenge (this week’s theme is edge). Unfortunately I couldn’t think of any words to go with them at the time, so they were replaced with the sundial. I came up with the poem last night, however, so decided I may as well make use of them!

Both of the above pictures were actually cropped out of this one, that shows the rugged edge the people were standing on in all its dramatic grandeur:

    • I took a lot of photos when we were down there! I decided from the start that I wasn’t going to just post galleries of pictures of the places we visited, but that I’d spread them out through challenge responses. I’ve probably got enough to fill blog posts for a year. 🙂 It was actually a lovely day when were at Tintagel, too, though the picture doesn’t really show it!
