Five Words June: Thursday’s Special

Again Paula has given us five words where we are invited to use one word or all in one or more photos. The words: branching,   vigilant, pomp,  hooked, continual.

The row of branching trees seems to be continual as do the vines, with their new branches just emerging. Into the distance, grove after grove.

A ship’s captain must be vigilant whether it be an ocean liner or a small river runabout

but only the most vigilant will see the delights that nature has to offer.

Pomp at play may be practice for later pomp in practice.

But of all the words that Paula gave it was hooked that got me hooked.

at the wharf of a rugged rough coastline where boats had to be hooked from the water and elevated for disembarkation to occur.

and a giant hook on the scenic sky ride. But what could be seen is hidden by this continual fog.

In response to Paula’s Thursday’s Special

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

  1. Irene, you are so creative in your interpretation of these words. My favorites are of the little boys at play. I can see their imagination at work.

    Irene, I don’t know how much time it took you to find all these original examples, but I want to tell you that it was worth the trouble. I absolutely enjoyed seeing the little one play. Your hooks most of all took me by surprise. What a wonderful interpretation! Thank you for this 🙂

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it Paula. I don’t spend that much time, usually I have a photo in mind when I start. This time I didn’t but scrolling through the albums I was surprised by how many examples of your wonderful word prompts quickly showed themselves. The hooks were a surprise even to me.
