Wreck, Earrings and Hope

05 Oct

As I parked on the quayside ready for choir this morning,I became aware of a commotion on the far side of the river. By the time I had focussed and zoomed, the hoohah was all over but I liked the photo anyway, the Mallard Ducks, the ripples on the water and the wreckage of an old boat.

I bought some beautiful, hand-made earrings in Santa Fe and wore them today, Kokopelli on one side and a maize plant on the other.

I planted bulbs this afternoon, full of hope for a Spring full of colour and scent.

And a poem for today, National Poetry Day,

    That poem could have been written today. Nature is more important than ever, but sadly we’re not doing such a good job of protecting it. Nice earrings Sally.

      Agreed, Jude. Sometimes the despair feels almost too much but then we find things of beauty that help – but, I agree, we are not doing a good enough job of protecting all that precious beauty. Perhaps Chris Packham is right……. 🙂
