Poem: a moment in time

While I sat on the bench in this photo, I wrote this poem this afternoon.

Many layers of land

Mountains, bush, beach and lake

Feint crunch of feet

And a murmur of wind on the breeze


Lapping water, feint ripples

Sun beaming down on crisp hills

Stillness, crickets and birdsong

Make for a peaceful moment in time


[poem by Melanie Ryding]
