Shivering in the softness of the falling drizzle
Unconsciously answering the neighing of the bay in a nearby field
Warming to the task as the body temperature rises
Stepping up the pace in order not to allow negativity set in
The mindset can be easily changed if positive thought is switched off
Thinking in this mode is healthy – food for the body
It is quite easy, especially on dull dark days to become that couch potato
We alone are the only ones who can motivate ourselves
Prompting from others tends the shell to close.
Reaching the spot – there is always a spot while taking a constitutional
Standing on a sloping bank watching a lone seal rise and fall
through the oceans mouth, soon to be joined by a playmate
On the headland my picture is of Jaws.
The voice of poetry knows no bounds
Imagination blends into real life and vice versa
Listening to waves lapping under a star-pricked sky
The moon as my only companion
Living life in the now.
