Where to start
My love is life itself
Favourite loves change with age
More gentle past times play a part
Music, sailing , oceans and rivers
Still stir my heart
Family – the bond of love ever strong
Grandchildren on the cusp of life
What will their future bring
I want to know but cannot
Log fires, red wine and friends
The cooling air is clear and still
The path now knows my feet
To the beach.
Calm waters reflect my lamp
Encroaching dusk protects the boat
Departing the horizon.
The black air is clear and still.
Track and beach
Protect their secrets
Free to enjoy the on-coming day.
The warming air is clear and still.
Seasons blur into one another
Gone the clear cut lines
Between autumn leaves and snow covered fells
Daffodils and warm scented roses
Nature cast adrift
Pushed by ever changing elements
To an unknown end.
Trees, flowers, grass, crops
In constant hesitation
Gardeners similarly so.
