My Wednesday

Things I Have Seen Today

The sun rising on a frosty field.

Tears running down a small child's face.

A dusting of snow on old slate rooves.

Swirling snowflakes showing the shapes of the wind.

Yellow headlights on a foggy grey road.

Black tarmac turned unexpectedly white.

A distant blue sky and sunlit plains shining beyond the heavy spotted veil of snowflakes which shrouded the misty heights and sheep-clad hills around me.

A sleek silver express train.

Laughing children on a big school bus.

Two white-haired old ladies in a small red car.

Crows circling above the bare black branches of a winter tree etched against the clear sharp blue of an evening sky.

A golden hill and a shadowy valley.

Calm reflections on a glassy reservoir.

Long-horned cattle with shaggy coats and muted hues grazing in the mist.

A pale evening sun polishing the white dusted bluff of Combs Moss in the distance.

A girl on a pony, a man with a dog.

A smile lighting up a small child's face.

The light going down on a still frozen field.

Things I Have Felt Today

A small child's hand in mine.

The strong hug of spindly young arms.

The energy of yoga.

The warmth of friendship.

Good food in my tummy.

The peace of solitude.

A mother's love.

It's the simple things in life that make it all worthwhile.

Thanks for the reminder.

How lovely that you've had a day of noticing beautiful things that can so easily pass us by.

What a beautiful day, and beautifully written. I'll view today in a new and slightly more sparkly light. Thank you.

I loved this. I might do it myself if you don't mind my pinching the idea!

I never fail to be moved by my daughter's hand in mine. I always relish the feeling because I know that one day it will stop.

All those are so beautiful. I'm glad you noticed and then passed them on.
