Joy to share

Glint on water
Sea of blue
You’re just like a friend I knew

Oft I came
sat for a while
That friend knew how to make me smile

Whiled the hours
slow away
Just sitting here on summer day

Looking out
with sunshine there
My true friend this joy to share

Wandering

Dappled sunlight
through the leaves
dances underneath
the trees

And with its movement
so do I
slowly as I
wander by

Right time, right place

In London quite early
(I was up with the lark)
So it’s still very quiet
in St James’ park

And just there by the lake
as I happenchanced by
A picture of heaven
for a smile and a cry

A swan with her babies
sheltered there by a wing
A privilege to see and
a beautiful thing

So I paused for a moment
and watched and admired
those small fluffy babies
the swans here had sired

An exquisite moment
right time and right place
which, I might add
brought a smile to my face

Beacon

The day was full of sunshine
as we headed out, day three
of our walks on hills of Sussex
my brother Dave and me
This time to Ditchling Beacon
climbing chalky paths and hill
then into shady valleys
where the air was calm and still
The green of Sussex countryside
just took our breath away
and contributed to bring about
another lovely day.

Every year in May, my brother Dave and I go for a week-long walk. We’ve been elsewhere but most times, the draw of the wonderful South Downs Way – out there on our doorstep – keeps us close to home. Day 4 took us just over 18 miles from Rodmell to Ditchling Beacon (and then down into Stanmer Woods).

Eastbourne

Woke up to a morning
with zero chance of rain
Another perfect day
for our walkings once again
Starting here in Eastbourne
with the sun on deep blue sea
the day is full of promise
for my brother, Dave and me
Fourteen miles, the Seven Sisters
over cliffs, the country park
Heading down to Alfriston
where we’ll be before it’s dark

Pastel Pink

Pastel pink and gorgeous
Marshmallow-like the blossom swells
on over-laden tree boughs lovely
As every April springtime tells

And there is nought to touch this
rather splendid time of year
This blossom outpouring wonder
there to bring us cheer

Magical

Magical this influence
of Mother Nature’s hand
blessed with a dose of sunshine
all across the land

Springtime knows no boundaries
her hand is everywhere
painting all with colour
for everyone to share
