Freedom to Think

  Jurassic Coast- Of Dorset and time stood still



Gently swaying grass, wet and long

Sounds of first morning song

Sunshine through clouds heaven sent

Nettles grown amongst ground ancient rent


Fell slopes scarred with chalk and  green

Harsh terrain rocky and obscene

Cows and sheep chewing content

Paths trodden and yet made no dent


Waves crashing on rocky shore

Same as a thousand years before

Ancient fisher wife winding twine

Local farm hand tending swine


Cottage standing sturdy, heavy with flint

Moisture on the sill adding its glint

People emerged and setting to the day

Showing once more the Jurassic coast way

I LIKE THIS...“Now, in their love, which was stronger, there were the seeds of hatred and fear and confusion growing at the same time: for love can exist with hatred, each preying on the other, and this is what gives it its greatest fury.” TH White The Once and Future King.....Of Lancelot and Guinevere
