You have not left me, you are…
The crystal clarity of a nearby robin’s eloquent solo on a frosty
the subtle sweet almond fragrance of delicate pink apple blossom in
the month of May,
the tranquility of a cloudlesss cornflower blue sky over a silver
the timeless presence and commanding majesty of a wise oak
Nestled under a copper beech hedge the simple elegance of a wild
a sunlit grass bank with native lemon primroses in an undisturbed
the flowers of entwined golden honeysuckle richly scenting the
serene evening air,
on the stubble of a harvested corn field the playful chasing of the
A field of flowering poppies, reminiscent of a Monet painting with a
rich scarlet glow,
a woodland snowdrop’s delicate bell shaped flower peeping above a
dusting of snow,
the arch of an artist’s palette rainbow briefly painting rain clouds of
frost tinted amber and copper leaves highlighted by a tapering shaft
of sun’s rays.
A light breeze creating liquid gold ripples on a summer field of
white horses riding the crests of restless grey waves in a tumultuous
awakening from winter slumber, unfurling leaves being visited by an
in the ever-changing beauty of the seasons, landscape and wildlife,
you are always there surrounding me.
In loving memory of James Farthing 1929 – 2017
