Flint

Like diamonds
They beam.
The morning sun
Reaches out
To touch them.

Boat

Closer still
Through a haze
Of unexpected
Warmth.Boat

Swimmer

She wraps her body,
Heads home
Barefoot.

Pier

I look
At its form.
A sail
Slips beyond.

If walls could talk. . . .

They’d tell a tale or 2

Of days gone by

Of battles fought

And lives renewed

From daub and wattle

And iron and brick

Shaped, wrought

And smoothed

Be

You o so beautiful
And dressed in yellow robes,
To drink the nectar down until
Your body’s bathed in gold.

Can there be a more mindful way to spend an hour than doing a little beachcombing

a bowl of soup

is all I wanted when I came in from the cold….

and so I chopped courgettes, peeled potatoes, added stock and warm spices.

I wanted to hibernate …

and so I did until morning.

When I woke my fuzzy head of recent days had subsided – my sinuses felt a little clearer …

and so I got busy with small jobs and make a shepherd pie to warm my son when he is home

lateĀ from his road trip. it’s waiting to go into the oven and bubble with homemade goodness.

I sustain those I love with hot food on a winters day …

and so too I am sustained.
