Essential Nature: Walk at Watersmeet

A few memories  from our Essential Nature walk at Watersmeet last Saturday:

On this lovely September morning
We have come together
To walk in quiet harmony,
Exploring the green heart of the wood;
Becoming aware of the way of things,
The joy of growth in spring,
Summers abundance,
Autumn’s ripe harvest
And winter’s rest.
We are witness to the magic
Of life’s forces,
As we grow too and
Prosper at the souls centre;
Walking in beauty-
Upon the earth
And as the butterflies dance
With the shadows of the trees
So our hearts dance with
The rhythm of the seasons.

Watersmeet Walk

The bare rocks

Bones of the earth

Sky-clad or clothed in gowns

 Of soft green, velvet moss

Rocks hidden amidst magnificent

Fronds of bracken and

Other ferns.

Edges of rocks

Coated in hard white lichens

Pale fungi

Growing in the dead , broken logs

Struggle to be seen.

About throughstones

I am primarily a visual artist, living on the North Devon coast, a beautiful semi-rural area in South West England. I am interested in full engagement with 'place' and the eternal movement of life - particularly as it relates to what we call 'the natural environment'.
