Mindfulness and Nature

For a couple of weeks now I am walking Sherky along Paston Way which is partly an old railway line with lots of trees and squirrels to either side. It is a beautiful walk especially if it is very warm and I use it to calm my hyperactive mind down.

I focus on my breathing and to listen to what my surrounding is telling me. This is a beautiful mindfulness exercise and I encourage you to try it out sometime.

I hear your call?

Bees prompt for me this week is, I hear your call! So well, here goes, heres my attempt at a poem using this prompt!

Tweet, tweet
as I sit
In the early morning hours
Tapping on my laptop
There you are
Outside my windows
Pretty birds
I hear your call!


Carol Annes poetry prompt from Bee…

This week Bees poetry prompt for me was “The ravens gather over the moor”.

This one was very challenging to me. But I am giving it a go anyway.

In flocks they swoop
In a big group
Flying high
In the sky
Over the moor
Lovely to look at
Such calm it brings
To see them fly
Oh so high
I watch, mezmorized.
