On Days Like These

Autumn on the grassy path

2015 has been blessed with many days like these, mild and sunlit.  

On days like these
happiness lingers long —
with friendship fêted

New friendships
always greeted
with joy

Old friendships
precious—
warmth of memories

Virtual friends,
real in all but flesh —
banish loneliness

May your Christmas be healthy and happy, and  may your days be untroubled.

  7. Your last stanza is so true and heartwarming. The image you closed with is a favorite of mine of yours. So brilliant and I love the perspective. Hugs!

    Peder and I send you and Jock our best wishes for a peaceful and healthy year ahead. (ps: that’s a very old track in your photo! Its depth on the left side is a give-away.)

    • They’re all like that round here, known as le bocage. During the war tanks could go for miles hidden from view along those tracks. Where we first lived in Normandy in the late 80s, lots of those tracks were tarmaced to give access to isolated farms and houses, including the one past our house.but fortunately lots remain as they always were.

        We have a lot of those tracks in our corner of Sussex, although not deepened by tanks. When we drive from here to Dorking, we take the unnumbered roads where much of it follows the old Pilgrims Way. Those lanes are very deep indeed.
