Images of a lock down day

yep it’s me, I was the cause of this for I needed a wee

Around me russet beech leafs flutter like butterfly’s, as my companion’s fur ripples, like a lake disturbed in a strong breeze. In a clear blue sky, crows glide and soar like kites. Watched by a black cat who four white paws give him away despite his hiding in the shadows. A young neighbour kicks his football, only for the breeze to sneakily carry it away. A tiny tot cries, for she wanted to join in. Whilst wrapped a their own world a couple walk hand in hand. And yes reader as William Wordsworth wrote “I wandered lonely as a cloud”…

Footnote: My inspiration for this post comes in part from a note book known as The Grasmere Journal by Dorothy Wordsworth (1771 – 1855) In this lock down period I plan to keep by own journal in an redundant diary.

    Outdoor refreshment is balm for the soul. I’m glad your buddy spurred it and a very good idea about keeping a journal through Covid-19.

      Creating a worthwhile journal is taking time and challenging me. For me it is ‘balm for the soul. Stay safe and look after yourself.

    Lovely piece, Michael. And I love your dog. We had one with an almost identical face, a short-haired border collie. Stay safe.

      Thank you so much Sandra. I am a fan of dogs, but I do love short haired collies. I receive a lot of pleasure from my four legged friends and my interest in gardening. Do you still have a garden.
