slipping on pebbles

this feels like treading water

yet gentle progress

if overwhelmed

put everything down, big breath

then go fill kettle

n.b. That’s it for ‘On Water’ for now, I feel the blog has reached saturation point with this theme and fifty is a good number to pause on. I will ensure to drip-feed more into the On Water series as I go. Thank you to everyone who has read, liked and commented on the series. Tomorrow sees the start of a new(ish) theme

Everything was under control

n.b. Hey, Life’s like that. Sometimes it’s best to just go with the flow.

On the Road xxvi

Restlessness ceases

Traveller’s weary heart breathes

Grass soft underfoot

Daylight

Dawn chorus glitters

Gloom shifts; brightens, lightens, lifts

Sun glints off the key

n.b. Sometimes one word, in a haystack of conversation, is the missing needle that is sought.

Head Wind

Nothing plays music

Swirl, swoosh, schwash air-sea rhythms

Shingle shifts on sand

On Calm

Frenetic rambles

Ideas pop, jump and ambush

Time to settle now
