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.

Cold

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.

Peppered

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.

Memories

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

RIP Alex

Hiatus

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

Subtle Changes

Some subtle changes.
Green leaves slowly darken hue,
summer shifts onwards.

Tennis

It’s that time again,
tennis, strawberries and cream.
Wimbledon summer.
