Golden Glory.

        Look out and see an ascending sun;

Her light dances

upon frosty blades of grass

in early morning;

as dawn breaks

and fog parts.

Surrendering

to a fleeting warmth.

I am back in France and the weather has turned decidely cold. Frosty mornings and light winds make for a brisk walk in the morning with Maggie. The land is dormant under the mantle of ice, but there is a wondrous beauty in the countryside with days like this. No hanging about when it is this cold (-4c). Maggie seems not to notice the chilled ground underfoot, happy to run through the frosty grass and munching on the thin ice covering almost dry puddles. I prefer a nice cup of tea…so I’m off to get warm.

A bientot!

 

 

About Al in France

Dreams do come true and I am now retired and living with Maggie, my chocolate labrador, in France in the Deux-Sevres. I love travel and photography and hope to combine both interests here to make a record for myself, and somewhere where I hope you will get to enjoy a part of my life in this region, in France and further afield when I get the opportunity. Please feel free to follow and comment. A Bientot!
