in these secluded glades
kind woodland blooms
avert their eyes
as ferns unfurl
all hesitant
in beams
of dappled sun
blades slowly
reaching out
into the silence
and here
deep in the wood
the colour
is green
the green of
plush new leaves
against the sky

walking with you


autumn sunshine
dappling our footsteps
steam clouds of breath
in the cold crisp air
eyes focused
on the small things
colours and shapes
light and contrast
sharing this pleasure
with you
