Ben Huberman has a lovely autumn photo this week as an example for the weekly photo challenge of temporary. Very apt, the autumn colour really is fleeting, enjoy it while you can.
I did an autumn post last week as a Thursday poem, so I’ve gone back in time for my temporary entry, to Colyford Goose Fayre a few years ago.
Where’s there’s always a temporary stage.
And all are welcomed.
The town crier may look grumpy.
But he’s happy ringing his bell, ‘Oyez, Oyez, Oyez!
As for the Morris Men, well they just do their crazy thing, don’t worry it’s only temporary.

Oh, a good take on temporary, Gilly! But you, thank goodness, aren’t temporary and I know I can count on some good posts from the Raggle Taggle Gypsy!
Well that’s an interesting take on temporary.
Beautiful mountain background of the temporary stage, very nice!
Gorgeous costume. 🙂
Great take on the challenge!
The stage might be temporary, but the customs are survivors. Is a goose Fayre what it sounds like? Any idea why especially geese?
What a perfect scene for temporary. Looks like a wild time!
I was looking for the goose too, but glad they were all having such merry times. Sending hugs and blue skies, darlin 🙂 🙂
Interesting photos. 🙂
Interesting interpretation, colourful costumes
I bet they enjoy it on the day but are glad it’s only temporary. I remember seeing Morris Dancers in a village near to my MiL’s in W.Sussex. It was fun and quite exhausting to watch. 🙂
In 200/300 hundred years I wonder what 21st century traditions will survive?!
