Christmas Challenge.

I was given an idea for Christmas this year and I thought it was good. Trish an interpreter and operates her site, link above  and has been a great follower and friend for a long time suggested doing a challenge of posting songs with the word ‘Christmas’ in the title. So always open to a challenge I did a little research and found to my surprise that there are many without the word Christmas. And the choice left makes selecting rather difficult. Like most people we don’t like all the songs or the artists, I am opening this to you my followers and friends to make a choice. I have managed to pick a few already which I will post during the month of December. I am intending to post a minimum of one a week, but hopefully I will do more, depending on response. However I look forward to your suggestions, and I will happily put a link to your site if you wish.

A Poem – Everyone Has Gone

Wednesday 16th November 2016

Image result for a soul

A Soul- credit of Google

EVERYONE HAS GONE

Casting ones mind into the world of fantasy.

Drifting on the wind floating high.

Clouds engulf and wipe the dirt from your skin.

Droplets of rain then wash and cleanse the soul.

You slowly fall to the earth and find yourself once again whole.

Grasses change colour, trees start to walk.

Bushes and hedges mumble in the breeze.

Dormice scamper and nibble at corn stalk.

Rainbows and goblins sliding, seeing gold to seize.

Rising from your resting place, to walk this earth again.

Step after uneasy step, pausing at the silver stream.

Thunder clouds build, wind whistles and starts to rain.

Darkness envelopes, as the grass glistens its emerald green.

Blindly, getting nowhere always remaining in the same place.

All alone seeing no one and not recognising your new home.

Birds with no colour fly high, ghosts of the sky form a face.

Ethereal figures floating close, heavenly bodies on the roam.

Panic rises within your soul, recognising her smile.

Then like a puff of smoke the ghostly vision is no more.

Chasing the sky, racing the clouds until time to rest a while.

Exhausted, tears on your cheeks kept rolling making them sore.

Darkening skies, darkening the soul, your new home awaits.

Floating down to the ground, seeing many looking on.

Time to sleep, time to rest, plenty of time to traipse.

Looking up from your home seeing everyone has gone.

Walk About the Forest.

Tuesday 18th October 2016.

RestawylePhotos

When we first set out, mid morning, the sun was shining, but it was not long before the rain started, not just any old rain. It was heavy rain, pouring and beating my poor old car and making my vision very difficult. Later during our walk after a short break it rained again but our perseverance proved worthwhile. The sun came out and spread its warmth and made the walk and day very enjoyable. Hope you enjoy it as well.

The entrance to the beauty.

 

dscf4169

This is a sad moment, some child’s lost toy waiting to be found. It was actually quite an emotive vision. The poor teddy bear was wet and bedraggled.

dscf4182

Information board with a difference.

dscf4185

Although I like this picture it does not do the actual real live sight justice. But I have the memory.

dscf4181

The Giant Sequoia

dscf4183

This little thrush did not want to fly, he happily hopped about the ground. with his friend ‘robin redbreast’ following him closely.

dscf4184

If one looks closely , the rain can be seen through the trees. My camera is not that good.

 

dscf4177

During the walk we got caught in the rain. This is my attempt at capturing water drops.

dscf4168

Beautiful reds, unfortunately we did not see much change in the expected autumn colours.

 

dscf4172

More tall trees. Beautiful sight.

dscf4180

Forest maintenance?

dscf4191

Whilst walking through the forest this vision of branches leaning against the large trees was a common sight. Have yet to find out why and what is the reason for it. I have my ideas.

dscf4193

Standing on a hill looking across this large building could be seen, I intend to find it on my next visit and discover what it is and what it is used for.
