WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SPORT OR RECREATION ?


SCAFELL PIKE ~ ENGLISH LAKE DISTRICT ~ BEAUTIFUL !
FELL WALKING AND ROCK CLIMBING ~ FREE VERSE SONNET
****************************************************
The Mountain Areas in the UK are spectacular
The main areas I have explored are ENGLAND
The Lake District ~ WALES Snowdonia ~ SCOTLAND
The Cairngorms. I have enjoyed these venues
For 30 years ~ My parents loved the MOUNTAINS !
Our Mountains are not very high SCAFELL PIKE
978 meters ~ SNOWDEN 1085 meters ~ BEN NEVIS
1344 meters. In the 3 PEAKS CHALLENGE you have
To cliimb all three in under 24 hours ! I never have !
The beauty of this is that each of them ~ singly ~ can
Be climbed in one day even by the over 50s. Snowden
Has a Hotel on the summit for a welcome GUINNESS !
Snow and Ice climbing in Scotland in the Winter can be
HAZARDOUS ~ So you need training and the right gear !
**********************************************
Thanks for readsing ~ Hope you can explore your local HILLS
Please contribute a STANZA ~ any length or style ~ BRIAN XOX


My favorite sport is fishing!
There's nothing quite like it
Gets the adrenaline pumping
A pike on the line--SNAP!!
Whether on a boat or on shore
Fishing is where the fun is at!
A family affair or all alone
Many inland lakes to fish
So many different kinds to catch
The Lake Perch taste the best YUM!
Don't forget ice fishing! BRRRRR!
Fishing is fun all over the USA!

I love taking photos
Capturing the world around me
One snapshot at a time.
Using my camera to show
The beauty of the land
The struggles of man
The farmer in thefield
Or just life every day


SNOOKER ~ A SONNET ~ TABLE GAME PLAYED WITH BALLS LIKE POOL
******************************************************
SNOOKER Is an indoor sport ~ so it may be played
At any time of the year by Male or Female ~ Old or Young
The cue ball is White and there are 16 Reds (1) Black (7)
Pink (6) Blue (5) Brown (4) Green (3) and Yellow (2)
You must pot a Red before you can pot a Color
This gives a Maximum Break of 147 ~ 16 Red 16 Black and
All the colors ~ It is much more exciting to play and watch
Than Pool because of all the different balls and their value.
It is very popular in the UK and the top Professionals
Can earn millions of pounds ~ it is very popular on TV
My highest break is 51 ~ 7 Reds 6 Blacks and a Yellow
Each color has a significance ! Yellow (happy)
Green (nature) Brown (earthy) Blue (doleful) Pink (sensual)
And ~ of course ~ BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL ~ BRIAN XOX

WATER SPORTS ~ SWIMMING AND DIVING
************************************
W ATER is an aqueous medium ~ we can be free as a Fish
A QUATIC Sports are an important part of Olympic Games
T O canoe and row and sail are very very fantastic sports
E VERYONE enjoys them however cold and wet they get !
R EAL Water Sports for me are Swimming and Diving
*****************************************
S WIMMING is very healthy uses all our muscles
P EOPLE in the UK are fortunate to have access to Pools
O FTEN our Rivers ~ Lakes and the Seas are far too cold
R IVERS are too choppy ! I like Diving we have 5 meter boards
T HERE are also lower and higher ones. Some of them are
S PRING BOARDS ~ It is very exhilaraitng sport ~ try it !
**********************************************
Thanks for visiting ~ please add a Stanza ~ BRIAN XOX


DANCING IS THE MOST ACCESSIBLE & REWARDING PASTIME
*****************************************************
I dance in the Hall and the rest of my Flat
I dance with my Girl Friend ~ I dance with my cat
But my friend Alphonso ~ He like to dance on his HAT
When I ask ~ Porque balles tu en tu Sombrero amigo ?
He laugh and say ~ Es OK mi ballaro conigo ?
I tell him flat ~ SI but please dont dance on my ha t!
ACAPULCO is nice they make good Spanish Rice
And we dance to the band Mariachi
The Rumba and Tango in Mexico ~ nice
They are cool and relaxed never starchy
But they grabbed my FEDORA the first time I wore her
And danced on her till she was flat !
Girls in Mexico City are obliging and pretty
But why must they try ~ Oh it makes me cry
WHY MUST THEY DANCE ON MY HAT ~ THATS THAT !
***************************************************
Thanks for visiting ~ Do you like to dance ~ BRIAN
