If we surrendered
to Earth's intelligence
we could rise up
~Rainer Maria Rilke~
Went away for a few days last week & packed a picnic lunch so we could stop mid journey,
stretch our legs and enjoy some time out of the car.
There always seems to be a tree that I gravitate too & this particular day it was this amazing Weeping Willow.
Oh the images I could spot as we sat and enjoyed bread, cheese, tomatoes and pickles.
Do you see the bird and the owl, the mountain goat and hare?
Her branches framed the Thames ...
and kept us cool as the temperature rose...
the ducks knew where to rest ...
visits from the swans reminded us of home
the time for acorn gathering
