Slow thaw now complete.
No sign of snow anywhere.
I drive into town.


On the way to town,
fields by the river awash;
flood plain doing its job.


early morning;
the best time 
to go shopping. Fewer

Endless Line

Heavy traffic through the town;
an endless line of heavy lorries
moving like snails.
The motorway must be closed.


Frustration; stuck
in traffic jams at road-works
and in queues at check-outs,
shopping in town.
So much time wasted.


A road closure caused
a detour through town;
which very nearly caused
me to be late
for an appointment.


Driving into town
stroboscopic lighting blinks my eyes;
sunlight through the hedgerows.

Into Town

Into town to shop;
half the things I wanted
were either out of stock,
the shop was closed
or I simply forgot!

Heather Beds

Heather beds
in shades of lilacs, purples, reds,
bring colour to the town’s
central round-a-bout.

Scenic Route

Traffic lights in town.
I take the scenic route to
the Garden Centre.

These are temporary lights for some road works and are causing delays. The ‘long way round’ is much nicer anyway!
