Glasson Dock Revisited.

Glasson dock steeped in sunshine, the echo of the empty space that was the Babagee. Barges and boats and banter of family gatherings shimmers across the water beyond the broken hulls. The old stones of the lockgate still holds the memory of your footsteps.

This is for the Quadrille with d’Verse hosted by Grace tonight, Still is the prompt and it is on there somewhere. The image is from Wikimedia and is of the derelict Babagee before it was demolished.

  1. As a poet & photographer, I am drawn to all things derelict, loving those rusted hulks, charred rotting timbers & /broken hulls/; nice Q44.

  2. Beautiful imagery, Alison, especially the in the assonance to foreground the ‘echo of the empty space’ and the alliteration that evokes the sound of family gatherings in ‘Barges and boats and banter’.
