Rainy Morning Inspiration



Walking along the creek

on a damp and dreary morning.

Enchanting scent wafting on the breeze

sends my spirit soaring to far away lands.

Exotic places where sugar and spice scent the air.

Silver white stars drifting among the tree branches.

Scattered here and there along the creek bank,

As though carelessly tossed by heaven’s hand.

Sweet Autumn Clematis

Rainy morning inspiration.

  3. Oh. You poor thing Elizabeth. Still in the creek !! I’ve got a spare room if you need to come in and warm up. I have a river 50m away which you can wade in when you have the need 😉 Ralph xox 😀
