Feet don’t touch the ground

Alarm wakes me at 5

Doves coos are deafening

Sun ray yet to warm

Dew soaks the grass

Time is of the essence

Walking dog in the woods

No time for delay

Don’t disappear, not today

Kettle boils slowly,

Or is it me in a rush?

Car to the garage

Wait, time ticks again

Then hurry to work

No time for lunch

No time to stop, to breath

To think

Then work finishes

Time for a drink

Too tired, too rushed

Time to sleep

Feet don’t touch the ground

Tomorrow will be slower

And time will wait.

Magical walk

Grass looks white

heavy with dew

my boots leave a trail

where I have been

from the woods

dark reds and browns

orange and yellow leaves

carpet the ground

the deep leaves

crunch underfoot

my feet kick them high

I smile inside

the inner child

is just peaking out

what a magical walk today

 

Contrasting Day

The bright blue skies have turned into light grey

The blazing sun is now hiding away

The blistering heat is now a cool gentle breeze

Cracks in the dry ground are huge muddy puddles

Stifling humid air has turned fresh and light

There is a newness to the grass covered in rain

I don’t mind the contrast it makes a nice change

Regardless of weather I’m still smiling

each day brings adventures all fresh and new
