Remembering January


A winter patchwork warms our hearts

A winter patchwork warms our heart

January 26th 2013

 

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!

 

 

 

A Winter Patchwork

 

Winter sky,

Diamond sparkling,

Patchwork fields

Fluffy,

Snugly snow,

Cattle gather

Munching

in furrows aglow.

Sign post to autum

Sign post to spring

January 24th 2013

Bright and Cheerful.

 

Nature’s signpost

Tells us to

Look deeper

At the warmth

Love

And light

Shining within.

Reflections

 

On these icy days,

Thaw and remember

Those around us

who may need us.

Sanguine Passion flower


image

Passion flower,
Like a shimmering
Shooting star
In a dazzling galaxy,
Seeds in a secret
Garden.
As the earth
Launches tendrils,
Tenderly,
A fire lights within,
Purple petals
Unfold like
An infants hand,
Innocently attractive,
Sanguine and serene.

Simply seeds


image

Simple seeds,
Starlights
Adorning banks
And fields,
Guiding us
Along our path
Like celestial
Balls of
Concentric
Energy,
Spiralling
To infinity.
These stellar
Fertility angels
Serenely
Settle
In a new
Wilderness.

Magical evening


image

As evening weaves
Her magic,
Soft, rippling
Waves,
Lulls signets and chicks
Into a web of
Nurturing dreams.

As serenity captures
The sun’s cooling rays,
Evening sighs
And closes
Her eyes.

Spring’s Flight


image

Swooping, startled flock
Searching for sanctuary over  turbulent waters
Find serenity in sheltered woodlands.

Swan dreams


image

Sun’s  rays  warms  her  feathers.
Snug and safe she dreams of
Lazy days on the canal,
weaving around boats, proudly
escorting her signets to
comfy reed beds to rest.
