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

More photos from our walk:


spiders thin and spiders tiny
are greeted and appreciated
for the work that they endure
to rid me of the pesky flies

but spiders large and spiders hairy
they do not get a warm reception
more an urge to scream and run

so when this greeted me this morning
a shriek emerged without intent
a cartoon style jump of fright
with my eyes popping out my head

but on reflection, looking closer
(well, as close as I would dare)
isn’t he quite fascinating as he sits and ponders there?
