Had a week off

imgp5111

Had a week off
didn’t do very much
just listened to music
and reading and such

Tidied a bit
sorted some stuff
and to be perfectly honest
that was enough

For a week off from work
is simply the best
and cannot be beaten
for a jolly good rest

Went for a walk

Went for a walk
down by the sea
Near to the waves
as they sang to me

Went for a walk
up on Sussex hill
Near to the Downs
a longing to fill

Went for a walk
along river’s bank
always a thrill
to be perfectly frank

Went for a walk
just down the road
and thought of this rhyme
there as a I strode

A glimpse of Spring

fullsizeoutput_1a58

I caught a glimpse of Spring
on the ground the other day
as a host of flowering crocuses
gathered there to say
that the sunshine’s getting warmer
so it’ll really not be long
before the sound from every meadow
is the voice of Springtime song

Surfcall

fullsizeoutput_1a4c

Sun on water
Surf a flat white
The beach as ever
A wonderful sight
Wavelets turning
Watch them fall
The sea in movement
With its call
Draws me in
And to its sound
I am as ever
Duty bound
For sea and surf
Are part of me
And I am one
Beside the sea

Windmill

imgp1389

Sails though empty caught the light
of golden evening sun
as the windmill here at Kingston
was admired by everyone

We’d caught a glimpse on the descent
from the high Drover’s trail
but here up close and personal
its beauty was unveiled

A testament to ages past
the miller lays at rest
with his home, the Kingston windmill
restored to look its best

Steep

Descending down to Kingston
the Drovers path was steep
So we all walked slow together
like a little herd of sheep

The sun sank down behind us
but the landscape there below
was still awash with sunshine
and in places still aglow

And over in the distance
Lewes town lay nestled there
Our destination on this day
with walking we had shared

The flower tree

imgp1371

Overlooking Falmer
we found a flower tree
High on top of Sussex Hill
quite unexpectedly

We paused a while and sang a song
as a homage to it there
Just us, the tree and sunshine
on this winter day so rare

Walking the Juggs Drover path between Brighton and Lewes, we spotted this tree from a distance. We don’t know the reason, but it’s lower branches were full of flower bouquets. So, having sung a song to it, we stopped a while for a picnic before heading on our way. Photo – Jempics
