Thursday Thoughts

Gone for the alliteration again - not sure what to write about today as have had lots of thoughts about all manner of things but not sure I can write poems about any of it. Would really like to write longer poems that have range that takes the reader on a journey. Still don't have the stamina for long ones so end up writing short ones.

Derwent Valley

lapwing and curlew call
unseen but present

red kites swoop across
the skyline
quarter the air

in the distance
the city life continues
the hum of traffic
a reminder of it all

The river Derwent that begins at Blanchland and ends at the Tyne is a beautiful river - dammed to create a reservoir at Edmundbyers; there are beautiful strecthes that you can take long walks along. Few people seem to have found it. Here is a collage of some of the photos I took last time we went for a walk at Allensford.
