Winter Sleep

    Winter Sleep Winter’s chill creeps and the urge to sleep engulfs nature’s domain, with earthen blankets overlaid with the softest of white coverlets concealing dormant heads, as life retreats from frosty air to await the sun's return.  

Fisherman’s Blues

Fisherman’s Blues Away from everyday concerns, from civilisation’s stress filled existence, gaze out over sun caressed waters, and let the current erode all cares.

Joyous laughter from young and old echoes through hearts numbed by the chill of dark days, connecting self with society, with life and future hope as the past... Continue Reading →

Dash

Dash Racing through childhood’s wild garden, free of cares, free of worries, impatient to reach a time when the wilderness of the adult world can be explored. Don’t run too fast. Don’t run too far. The brave new world you seek to inhabit is populated by dangers uncounted. Plot the path with care to find... Continue Reading →
