Suddenly I’m there

Suddenly I’m there

Suddenly I’m there
Hearing the birdsong above the murmuring of the water
Cool under the tree
Enjoying the dappling of the hot sun
Breathing deep
Inhaling the scents of a woodland stream

Stone in the water

Stone in the water

Deep plunge pool in the heart of the moor
Centred in spring time unfurling of bracken
Shadowed by a twisted thorn tree
Water pours in over a mossy lip
Large pebbles line the sloping
Glowing colours in crystal water

Something falls
Breaks the surface
Circles upon circles radiate
Contours ripple to a point of disappearance
Sparkle in the dawn light
Stone in the water
