Hope Shines

dark clouds obscure, shadows cast over dreaming landscapes; hope shines through This post is for day 118 of 365 Days Wild.

Out for Dawn

gunpowder grey clouds shift, as night swiftly fades, lightening with tints of mauve and lavender and apricot, with a burst of fresh peaches sweetly tanging across newly awakened senses, both promise and warning combined: time is short; make it count For day 36 of 365 Days Wild I walked out in the early hours to … More Out for Dawn

Cloudy Skies

a glimmer of light a moment of joy an awakening of hope Cloudy skies never keep me home, but a glimpse of the sun makes everything so much better. So… it seems I’m doing 365 Days Wild, after all. That makes this day 31’s Random Act of Wildness. I’m going to try and make this … More Cloudy Skies

Embracing Autumn

cloaked in society’s expectations individuality lies suffocated beneath conformity’s desire to belong but Autumn clad in Spring’s garb plays an unsuited role as bright colours fade and connections dissolve until expectations lie discarded in a carpet of tumbled leaves and naked truths are bared to a frost of thoughtless jeers that melt away into morning mist in the dawning light of self-acceptance Sometimes I … More Embracing Autumn

Earthed

curl bare toes in damp grass * open mind * awaken senses to petrichorous breezes * open heart * stride forwards in defiance of rainclouds * open soul

Ascend

ascend the path to wisdom as you explore the secret pathways that entice you to remain forever within those enchanted reveries that promise secret loves Last weekend we visited Brodsworth Hall and Gardens, in South Yorkshire. I still can’t walk very far or very fast so we just had a leisurely stroll around the gardens. … More Ascend

Dance

pirouette amidst the blooms as vibrant sunlight streams on through illuminating dull endeavours into joy Take a seat, there, upon the path, beside the Granny’s Bonnets. There’s a buzzing, sound coming from amidst the sunlit flowers. There’s a bee – you know there is, even if it remains hidden from sight. You strain your eyes … More Dance

November 2017

You wend your way across the meadow’s open expanse as the early sun casts its glow upon the toadstools and the tumbled leaves. The chill air catches at your throat as you breathe deep. Negativity disperses with the puther of each expelled breath… … More November 2017

October 2017

Newly shorn, the meadow lies bare now under the October sun, the golden trim giving accent to the surround of autumnal trees. The air holds a bitter nip that the early light is hesitant to dispel, but the clear sky promises pleasant hours ahead – a welcome change from the wet, windy and overcast days … More October 2017

August 2017

Grasses have ripened into swathes of gold, and leaves have deepened their colour in maturity, for the meadow and woodland have passed their peak, accepting the inevitability of the ageing year.   It’s been a few months since I last joined in with Cardinal Guzman’s Changing Seasons photo challenge, but I thought that, seeing as … More August 2017

Ivy Heart

nurture an ivy heart: ever thriving in defiance of adversity, veins aglow with faithful affection, binding for eternity

January 2017

As the midwinter celebrations fade into memory, the new year settles into a haze of grey monotony – a progression of days shrouded in obscuring mist. But even amidst the gloom, an allure can be found if you open your eyes to the sight. Light will filter through even on the dullest of days. (Remember to … More January 2017

All About Nature

In amongst the minutiae, the everyday, the hither and thither of life rushing by, there’s no time to talk, no time to rest, no time… Stop. Breathe deep. Tilt your face to the sun; feel the warmth on your skin. The world will wait. Listen to the harmonies of nature’s music as wind strummed trees join in chorus with buzzing … More All About Nature

First to Fall

they are the first to fall they will not be the last I had hoped to post my September Changing Season’s gallery today. Unfortunately I’m not yet done with sorting through the pictures! These shots were taken earlier on in the month so I thought I’d share them and the little poem that I wrote … More First to Fall
