Lady birds in Autumn

Boats bobbing along-

a man standing drifting sideways

on his barge.


Drunk men chatting carelessly,

for anyone who cared to listen.

A tree as big as a giant standing proud,


Lady birds cluster-

lost on black railings,

Canada goose spreading it’s wings like an A380.


A child stares at the river,

in his own world.

Do you have a care in the world.


Not today,

A wind blows viciously in our faces,

Pulling us along by our eyes,


A mini adventure

in a matter of minutes.

Slow steady bus: brick walls, bridges…home.

After a much needed lunch break we drafted our joint poem. Here’s is the result draft 3.

Black, white and orange

I continue to be busy with my space full of others people and other things, but when I took my camera with me last week, I knew there would be images and moments I would wish to share on wordpress.

Here they are with just a few words . . .

and then came a pop of colour

I was drawn in from the street. Trees pulled me through the gate and into the open door. It was a church, a chapel, a place of peace and creativity that enthralled me.

my time

doesn’t feel like my own unless I am looking through a lens and capturing a moment these days.

Before too long these days will be yesterdays.

I am searching for moments to capture more tomorrows.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImagewelcome to my moments of peace and beauty on an early autumn walk around the nature reserve at Pegwell Bay
