Spray Heads

The Blowhole is found along to the left of that far sticky-out bit to the left, but is best left alone!

Village with a Blow-hole of its own;

A wave, expect to surge into the stone

To swallow it, then comes a mighty quake;

Laughs local tribe as stranger wet will make

When standing on the edges; has a fit

As spray of water out of it will spit.


My old village of Knysna Heads has been on my mind a lot lately. Wordle 306 is just tailor-made for reflecting one of our childish amusements, when the tide was right, of watching unsuspecting sightseers get drenched.

    What a great depiction – as ever your use of the prompt words is effortless

    Love how the village is turned into a whale by having its own blow-hole; gives your locale a depth of character, adding to the sweet charm of the whole poem.

    Fun memories, Col… and these words seem to have fallen in the right order for you!

    Beautifully constructed poem with all the words in given order. That must have been fun (or a real test) to do.
