Weekly writing challenge: Just nature, you and I


This weeks writing challenge was to step out of your comfort zone, so I thought I would try poetry.

Hope you like it…..

 

The old oak tree shelters the sunshine,

On another hot sunday afternoon,

Gentle whispering branches

And a pure clear watery sky.

 

looking through the grass at the lake beyond,

Sailing boats at the waters edge

And silence, except for the birds in the trees,

The ducks still singing their song.

 

A brood of ducks at the waters edge,

A screaming kid nearby,

A helicopter breaks the silence,

As the world carries on rolling by.

    • Thank you! It’s a photo of the location I am referring to, not quite the exact spot I was sat, but I’m pleased you could see the connection 🙂
