I’d Rather Be… Lying on my back

I’d Rather Be…

…lying on my back
in the long grass
basking in the warmth
of a highland summer’s day
drinking in
the vast array of sensations
no words can define
listening to
the buzz of the bees and flies
the tunes of breeze
through the grasses
the call of the sheep
to their growing lambs
indulging in
the bouquet of scents
and watching the clouds
gently floating by…
… succinctly… in Heaven!


New Year Blessings

When I finally took the plunge and began blogging I could not have envisaged how much joy all the items I posted and read would have brought me and how much they have expanded my world.

So I would like to express my appreciation to everyone, valued followers and single visitors, who have taken the time to look, read and/or comment on my contributions and to wish you all the Very Best of Moments Always.

Wheel Legacy – Friday Fictioneers 29 December 2017


Wheel Legacy

“Wheels! What d’ya think?”
“Hmmm? Different.”
“It’s that alright!”
“He left this for me…
…with a note – he’d a great sense of humour.”

For Ellie
Wheel always remember
Times that we spent
In deep contemplation
Of so much dissent
Around we would go
Full circle sometimes
Always the same answer
Want peace?
Quiet the mind.
There’s always a circle
A beginning and an end
Forever they’re fused
So nothing to mend
There’s always some movement
Nothing stands still
Just embrace any contrast
No need for strong will.
Be the axle my friend and just observe the wheel.

“When’s his funeral?”

Friday Fictioneers


Bird – Ungullible!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Bird

The Seagulls’ attitude
An aire of defiance
For me they are
The embodiment of freedom.




I awoke again this morning
With the scent of Autumn in the air.
It invigorated my spirit
End of summer’s almost there.

I can feel a building of excitement
As the season’s change again
The urge to gather nuts and stores
Ready for the onslaught
Of winters wind and rain.

I usually feel a sadness
When Summer’s almost done
But I’ve had my fill of sunshine
So now  Autumn…  bring it on!



Reflecting – On Man’s Impact/Art in Nature


Where do you look?

What do you see?

Where my ‘eye’ is drawn…

…Reflects more about me!



Nature’s Mirror

Wherever I look
Whatever I see
Nature always mirrors
What’s going on in me!
