Seascape Weathervane

Seascape Weathervane

The Photo Challenge: Each Wednesday, Timeless Lady at  Minding My P’s With Q posts a photograph of a Weather Vane with a short description of where it can be found, and any history connected to it. Anyone is welcome to join in.

Here’s my latest submission, a day late. My husband actually spotted this weathervane, atop an aged apartment  building. It features two ships sailing on a rough sea. The lower level of this three story structure has been converted into small shops and businesses, and the building, on the whole, has been well preserved. Its features seem to be a mix of architectural styles, making it unique in the area.

Weather Vane Wednesday Challenge

Weather Vane Wednesday Challenge

I’ve found another weather vane in Regina, enabling me to take part in the Weather Vane Wednesday photo challenge for a second time. A bison stands atop this weather vane located in the front garden of a home in a nearby neighbourhood.

Huge herds of bison roamed the prairies a couple of hundred years ago, and were almost hunted to extinction. Thankfully, the bison population has increased significantly enough to be taken off the endangered species list. The prairie province of Manitoba features a bison on its provincial coat of arms.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday

I finally found a weather vane in Regina, enabling me to take part in the Weather Vane Wednesday photo challenge. This modern style weather vane is located atop the clock tower of Fire Station Number One. This building was built in 1986 at this location, and the original Number One was converted into office spaces.

Liz at Exploring Colour published a post, Pete’s Dragon and an invitation:
“I’m inviting anyone who feels inspired, to do something creative about the Snow Dragon and publish it on your blog.”

Here’s my poem:

Flight of the Snow Dragon

She yearns to ride the winds of winter.
She longs to swim the icy sea.
She waits atop a frosty mountain,
For darkness to come, her time to be free.

Her shimmering, iridescent scales,
Like hoar-frost in the sunlight gleam.
But night will shield this creature of wonder,
It’s then she takes flight, the snow dragon queen.

Her wings spread wide, she soars t’ward heaven,
Then swoops with grace to the waters below.
She rides the waves of the northern ocean,
Her form scarce seen in the icy flow.

So little remains of her mystical kingdom,
Her realm now shrouded, hidden from sight.
Each twilight she waits atop her chill mountain,
To take wing again, in the wintry night.

Attempting to write this poem has made me realize that fantasy is not my forte, but you never know until you try!
