Miz Quickly’s Day 22: EZ Rhyme

My Thoughts Are Bared and Lost 

to amber flares of bracken, there
in the deep floodwaters
of last night’s storm, a moment snared
on the heather heaths and meaty petrichor,
crows fly the low wintered sun, and
you and I are lost in the New Forest
where air owns the sounds of church bells
and the hued views of the River Itchen.

      • Yeah, there are a couple in that area. We used to love going to Mottisfont – used to cycle thee – which is the Test, In Soton it is very built up – I was in Ocean Village and I looked across to the shipbuilders in Woolston.

        • I love the Test Valley. We make an annual visit to the Peat Spade pub in Longstock (Stockbridge) for lunch followed by a long walk. Ocean Village is my husband’s dream location. He’d love to live on the water and have a sailboat.
