For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: plump. This turtle kinetic sculpture is not that plump….
Taken Saturday, at the water part of the Kinetic Sculpture Race. It is all human powered and they have to go out in the cold water, currently around 52 degrees F. Brrrrr. The teams have a brake test down Monroe Street first and then line up to head for the water. The Coast Guard stands ready and various kayaks and sailboats are there. They have to get to a destination and bring back the superhero(ine) mask!
The theme this year is mediocre superhero(ine)s. Lots of glitter and capes and boots. The costumes are wonderful!
To the women and men who are speaking up, there is nothing mediocre about your heroism.
Prayers (and send money) for people at the earthquake and tsunami site, and that we do not have a new partisan emotionally uncontrolled person on our high court. And for all the people who have been silenced.
We are having fire skies, with the sun setting through smoke, here. I took this blue photo at the same time in the evening, the polarized light acting oddly through the smoke. It enhanced the reds and the blues. The smoke makes me feel low level worry all the time and sad.
I picked the photograph, taken off the dock in Port Townsend in 2017, before reading the prompt. It doesn’t fit the prompt. Oh, yes, it does, it’s the color. Quite gorgeous to watch slowly swimming along.
On a foggy day.
And the opposite shore and even the ferry, can only sometimes be seen.
It’s an ocean
Big enough for us all
Float under the bridge with me
Or wander out to distant ships at sea
Stay on the surface
Or come down in the depths
Leap out and crash back in whale form
Or surf the wake of a boat
Or in the waves to catch a fish
Storms come and rain and rainbows
Sky with clouds lightening sun stars
Climb a rock or lighthouse or cliff
Or stand on a boat
But then return oh love return to the sea
