Spring's Breeze & A Musical Interlude!

Spring’s breeze strokes my cheek
Star flower heralds warm days
Storm warning – keep safe!

These past few days have been the sunniest for months and numerous walks in woods, along the coast, inspired me to write the haiku above.

Spring is so close, almost tangible, yet the threat of the latest tempest this weekend returns us to the winter gloom. Before Storm Ciara, a severe gale, coursed its way across the UK we headed outside enjoying the glory of nature to the utmost. Soon enough we needed to retreat indoors to the cosiness of home.

Out on the daily meditations, I remember that not only Mother Nature can lift us high, music also has a sublime ability to reach our inner core.

One piece that recently touched me so is a piano cover by Sammy Perry of Odesza’s song ‘A Moment Apart’. It is one of Sammy’s favourite songs from their album.

Listening to this my spirits soar. I imagine spring, life itself, unfurling. It is peaceful, magical and inspirational. Enjoy!

      Connie, thank you so much, that’s wonderful! 😀 I hope Spring is soon with you … here two days of semi-warm and heavenly to be out planting in the garden! 🌺

      Julie, you would not be envious at all today! 😀 Pelting ice-cold rain and gale force winds – again! Although I can look out onto the lilac tree green with leaf buds, the odd bedraggled daffodil waving hello! So glad you enjoyed the photos, my haiku and Sammy’s music. Thank you so much and yes, he is talented – don’t think he realises how much! 😀

      Hope Spring soon peeks out for you! xx 🌺
