Bike Ride

At last a fine day.
Out for a bike ride to blow
the cobwebs away.


Tree full of cherries
stripped bare while I was away —
birds opportune feast!

Making Time

Very busy day.
I make time to sit outside
soaking up sunshine.

Beech Tree

The staunch old beech tree
grown too big, too near the house.
Sad to see it go.


Curled up by the fire
feeling sorry for myself,
nursing my cold.

Winter Birds

Holly with berry
Hungry winter birds
feasting on nature’s bounty:
red holly berries.


Seasons slowly change.
Trees peppered with new colours —
fiery reds and golds.

Up and Down

Up and down weather,
one day hot the next day not.
An English summer.


Sad and happy day.
Memories of an old friend
at his funeral.

RIP Alex


Hiatus in time.
Wondering which way to turn,
leaves blow in the breeze.
