December 15th-21st, 2014

December 15th, 2014
Freshly milled slowly cooked
creamy Scottish Oats
warm heart and soul this day

December 16th, 2014
Another day of mists and heavy rains
as we make our way up valley
landscapes fly past the windows
lying green and lush once again
silvery rivulets wind through hillocks
gurgling merrily skipping over stones
valley oaks raise bare inky arms up
into the low hanging sky above
cattle wearing thick winter coats
graze peacefully some resting
others turning curiously as we pass
winter storms hit wave after wave
nourishing the open land we love
our mountains are cloaked in clouds
next sunny day will reveal fresh
blankets of ermine~winter is here

Woodland Trio
Barren earth replenished
she's fruitful again
loins teaming with new life
Pushing up impatiently
they jostle for space
blindly seeking the light
Winter bare woodlands
now thickly carpeted
with clusters and fairy rings

December 18th, 2014
Headed to town we spot him once again
our eagle seen early this spring
he's perched high above the creek
Hours later now heading back home
we slow down searching the trees
find him again he's not solitary now
Joined by his mate two proud heads turn
snowy feathers ruffled by the wind
their sharp eyes scanning the land below


December 19th, 2014
After the night storm
our valley is swathed
in heavy damp mists
above us on the ridge
trees appear briefly
like phantoms swaying
sighing in the wind
draped in tattered veils
down in the garden
melodious wind chimes
twirl ~ singing softly
treefrog creaks hoarsely
birds bob on thin branches
while chattering quietly
adding their sweet voices
to nature's symphony

December 20th, 2014
Yule is drawing
near~warming hearts

 December 21st, 2014
Solstice morn find us quietly
on silvered wings
symbol of peace perches
bright clear message
of renewed hope and light
bringing blessings
to you and yours~worldwide
