110411 riverside walk


I heard the Millenium Youth Choir sing at the Cathedral yesterday which was uplifting. I’m assuming they’ve been around for 11 years now. I also went for a lovely walk in the Spring bordering on high summer sunshine through the newly landscaped Cherry Orchard and over the brand new Diglis bridge. It is standing the test of time well and with its generous proportions and top quality materials is still looking fantastic. We turned left and followed the west bank of the Severn southwards to the confluence with the river Teme. It is a really magical spot and one we return to often. Really rural but still within the boundary of the city.The most perfect picnic spot.

bramble 10812


summer bramble hedge

perfectly ripe for picking –

scratches on passing

10810 change of heart


as summer rain falls,

sunshine’s breaking through slowly –

damp earth’s change of heart

dreaming 1087


on August morn lie

dreaming of perfect summer –

cloudy overhead

summer rain 1082


sharp summer rain falls,

crashes onto secret slate –

twittering wood snaps

night 1077


slow summer right down

hold still the longest night – see –

fast fall approaching

summer 1066


distant sound of bells

distant drone of air machine

takes summer away
