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
in furrows aglow.

Bright and Cheerful.

On these icy days,
Thaw and remember
Those around us
who may need us.

The spirited woodland
Towers of ivy
Peonies standing proudly.
Old Boots and clogs
Hide amongst old oaks,
Waiting to be found.
Pregnant with blossom.
Whilst they whisper
Their wildest thoughts,

This morning’s wonderful,uplifting walk along the snowy lane, almost dream like. Perhaps these ducks and goose are from a fairytale reminding us to reflect on nurturing, family and the importance of community spirit. Hopefully on these cool, icy days we’ll ‘thaw’ and remember those around us who may need us.
