Sunday walk

Swan high in blue sky,
Red kite harried by two crows,
Skein of geese fly by.

Velvet grey fungi
Nestled on emerald moss,
Leaves under my feet.

Cold wind yet warm sun.
New paths explored then
Return home – happy.

The view from the conservatory

This morning, fresh from a long night’s sleep after I returned from the EuroSTAR conference, I sat in the conservatory and watched the sky – a skein of autumn geese flew high, by v-skewed across the pale autumn sky. A murmuration of starlings. The parliament of rooks that sweep across the garden. I refilled the bird feeders for the smaller birds, and reflected, how blessed I am to have found this place as my haven and my home.
