Whimsically wandering


Whimsically wandering Along the Colne, Not far from home, Whimsically wandering, Pondering: Longing for the Kingfisher to Sing, Wishing for Deer To appear. daisies Gently treading: Daisies for A fairy wedding And nettle flowers Pretty nettle petals. Settling by the Weeping Willow, weeping willow Velvet Violets By my pillow. Humbled by Bumblebees; Entranced by Trees. So much to See.


Cobweb Cottage

Cobweb Cottage


Whispering welcoming echoes,

Purple smoke sweeps

Like spectres across

The threshold.

Firelight flickers,

Glowing chintzy cobwebs

Weeping waves

around window panes.

Twisted hazel,

Musty myrtle,

Wise woman’s cozy coven.

Over the last few nights, I have watched the moon grow full. I have been walking in it’s magical light and spooky shadows listening to nature’s snuffles and hoots. Tonight it is full,so I thought this little poem rather appropriate.

Bluebell lullaby


On a lush spring bank,
Sweet meadow herbs
Mingle their magic
With the elegant,
Intoxicating, fever
Bluebell: Queen
Of the night.

Nature’s pillow,
Plump and soothing,
Drop tears of nectar,
Through pursed lips,
Sweet and melting like
fine, buttery, moist
Cake crumbs.

Stars of the meadow
Shine in the mind,
Thousands of tiny,
Crystal,  tinkling bells.
One of nature’s
Finest lullabies.
