Frosted jetty –
The approach of winter brings beauty.

While I was in England over the summer
We visited an open air museum.
In the old stables,
There were some magnificent shire horses –
With enormous feet
And long, shaggy hair.
I could just imagine them
Pulling colourful caravans around the countryside
In days long past.
Big can be bold

It was the end of October
And the frosted jetty floated in the rising sun.
A glowing Ruby
Was ready to play in the golden light.
The frost turned her breath
Into a white beard.
Grass crunched underfoot –
And the diamond-studded earth
Made a lovely canvas for a meeting with friends.
After all, happiness is a frosted dog!

It’s been very grey here -
So grey that the newspapers are saying
We’ve had fewer than 8 hours of sunshine so far this month.
In fact, it looks as if even the ducks are complaining about the lack of sun!
There are moments of beauty, though,
When the grey and the bird
Look like a silken painting.

November is a grey month, so you have to look hard for colour.
I found it here
In a red leaf with rain in the background.
A flash of gold
Reminds me that we have to hang on
And have hope at this time of year.
In the right light,
Even an ageing leaf
Can look like a stained glass window.
“Don’t leaf me!” Ruby seems to be saying,
As we wave farewell to autumn.
