Part 16: Post Lockdown Walk
Dated 19th July 2020
At last permission granted, long awaited freedom to roam afar again, to witness the changes of these last few months at near-by favourites.
Waters now run low and slow, bubbling across and around exposed bleached stone, its invitation accepted to explore the river bed.
A Cyclops Elm stands alone, proud, straggly yet sprouting with strength to come. One other so sad to see, bared of all leaves so forlorn.
Fir trees stand tall behind the latest line of logger-man’s continual harvest, seen neatly arranged for collection, by steel grips.
A single Hawthorn, selected perhaps for being opposite Ancestors Stones by the nearby river, visited and adorned with colourful ribbons…..by who knows who.
Meadows alive with insect noise, abundant with wildflower, to show they still can.
