Jetty – Waiting for the tide


This photo was taken just a few week’s ago on beautiful October day. We often spend our holidays walking along the North Norfolk coastal path with our Border Collies. The Salt Marshes have a wild beauty unique to Norfolk and is a fabulous place  for spotting seabirds, wildlife, wild flowers,  butterflies and dragonflies. We were walking from Stiffkey to Morston when I took this opportunity to photograph the Creek with the sleeping boats gently swaying as the tide came in. I wonder who uses the jetty? Who built the jetty?

November dark evenings are a good time to reflect on our holidays. This picture also fits Cee’s Which Way challenge for this week.

Enjoy !

Summer breeze dreams



Summer breeze heeds the

Whispering reeds;  signature

Like shadows tell tales.

Secluded Whispering Waters


In the salty, storm washed day...

In the salty, storm washed day…

In the salty,

Storm washed day,

The dogs were warm and

Longed to play;

They Launched into

Secluded whispering waters,

Framed by bullrush torches

And scorched

Willow herb bay.

The inspiration for my poem today was Cee’s Black and white photography challenge topic: Reflections.

Angels’ breath


2015-06-21 23.02.41-1_1

We sat quietly last night upon a hill and watched the sun go down, reflecting on our fathers and watching daughters and sons walking with their fathers enjoying a rather special evening.  I heard many bells ringing and owls hooting as the sun melted into the soft blanket and then darkness fell.

Angels breath floats

On tangerine waves

Over turquoise seas

As serenity breathes.

Celebration

Reflections

My son gets married on Saturday, so as you can imagine I’ll be very busy over the next couple of days! So I’ve taken a quiet moment, while my dogs lie asleep to reflect on a few beautiful moments of spring. My son is getting married to a lovely Scottish girl in Edinburgh. The celebration is to be held at a Scottish country home and estate, so I hope to be capturing the essence of that beautiful day and location and share it with you next week.

Reflecting on yesterday’s goodness

Reflecting on yesterday's goodness

Reflecting on the goodness and
Vitality of yesterday
Makes today special.

Watching the sun going down and listening to nature’s lullaby inpired me to reflect and take forward that moment in time to the next day. Live every day as a special day.

Frozen guardian


Frozen guardian

Frozen guardian of

A magical glade,

A golden mantle lain;

Icy jangles,

Crispy tangles,

Fancy dangles

Reflecting wishes

and tales from far

Off lands.

Remembering January


A winter patchwork warms our hearts

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.

Bright and Cheerful.

 

Nature’s signpost

Tells us to

Look deeper

At the warmth

Love

And light

Shining within.

On these icy days,

Thaw and remember

Those around us

who may need us.

NaNoWriMo: Writer’s rooms


image

I’m still trying to plan my novel and select a title, which is proving to be deflating.  So by going back to my roots as a poet and photographer, hopefully, I’ve created my writer’s room which will inspire me and others to turn those emerging thoughts into a book. Or maybe I should stick to poetry!  I hope you enjoy it anyway.

Little river rooms,
Where writer’s ideas
Loom;
Thoughts stray
Throughout the day.
Scribbled ripples,
Wandering riddles,
Flirtatious leaves,
Sensational reflections,
Reeds and deeds.

An unseasonally
Satiating warm spell,
Enhances saturated
Rusting hues like
Pheasants’
Plumage.

This week’s challenge is to show saturation in a photograph. I couldn’t resist taking this one, I hope you enjoy it and my little poem!
