it is the little things that excite, even
in the height of summer, low look
for seeds, small flowers studded
in hedgerows, dry stone walls here.
our lane remains dusty, unmade, plans
delayed a while to update. developers have
bought the big house, a nice place for holidays
the stone lion is gone, due to health
and saftey, wobbly.
there is a small pool, to look
in for blessings , a reflection
on the day .
for the future.
