No! It's not spring

              full salt barn

roadside

 

Useless depot

pre-dawn birdsong

 

Blue bucket of Gold

         refrain

the sound of

        a windswept shore

 

inland the A1 winds its way

North

The Watford Gap

 

Camouflage undergrowth

at least the sun is shining

 

Nic is concerned

 

look for closeness of trains

as they speed  north / south

 

Perspective alters

            depending on seating

 

Free Parking for 2 hours

 

Against the blue birch

phone mast

            silver straight

   gaps in hedge

 

The ravens  circle

        shadow reflected

 

In summer

                    place to picnic

In spring

                make phone calls

on the

     way south

 

Document the change
