Every day has been a wet grey day this week;the fields have been soggy and even the dogs have been fed up of getting muddy! For a change I decided to visit a friend and go for a walk round the quiet old village of Kimpton in Hertfordshire; my photos inspired me to write this poem as did my feelings about that damp,dark day, its smells,sounds and the ghostly cottages by the churchyard on the green.
It’s my birthday today, so how better than to share my village ramble with you! I also enjoyed coffee and cake this morning and my tranquil yoga class and the day is not yet over!
This view was such a magical delight to come across when I was walking my dogs near the heath. I stopped to soak up the golden rays and the chill to my face, as I worked the camera at the same time holding on to the dogs! I hope you enjoy my post.
As the nights draw in in December, I feel it is a time for reflection and so I have decided to look back over my first year of blogging with wordpress and post a selection of pictures and writing, quotes and poems. It’s funny how these first walks in the countryside armed with at the time my phone camera and a small notepad, have come flooding back to me and reminded me of the peace and tranquillity of these special moments in the day when it was all mine to find the ‘essence’ and write from my heart. I hope you enjoy anyway!
