Lazy Poets Thursday Tanka

My Dartmoor series continues with some contented locals.


 Shelter beside rocks

grazing in peace without fear

Scotch black-faced ram sheep

shaggy fleece hangs soft and pale

soon they’ll fetch you for the shear.

The lazy poet is as much about words as photography, hence the image is small. You can click to see a larger version if you want. 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Arranged

Sara Rosso at the WordPress Daily Post has chosen the theme of ‘Arranged’ for this weeks challenge. I liked the way these brightly decorated sheep were arranged on the Cathedral green!

They were decorated by children in local schools and grazed on the green for the weekend, it’s a pity they didn’t stay.
