Spring is officially here. My garden has forsythia and flowering currant in bloom as well as various bulbs. But it has gone cold again here in the UK and snow showers are forecast for early next week.
It has been a rather turbulent time for me personally, a chest infection was followed by an episode of blocked drains, drains shared by 3 houses. These were successfully cleared and I then attended the hospital to see my consultant over long term leg and ankle pain. So now I have my leg in plaster as I have an inflamed tendon as well as other problems which cannot be sorted until the tendon is healed.
This of course means I have to rest but it is a gift in many ways. I will be able to catch up with my reading, write more poetry and work on my second book. I still have a few signed copies of my first book available, so please let me know if you would like one. To whet your appetite here is one of the poems;
Spirit of the Land
The Spirit of the Land, it called to me
As I stood on the edge of the cliff;
The water flowed on deep down below,
While the crow soared high above.
My feet grew roots into the earth
As I stood there on the cliff;
My heart expanded and filled with love
As I became one with the land.
