laptop, notepad, smart phone
beep, flicker, connect and drone
machines on people’s laps
many little taps
linking to contacts by email and text
looking at messages and selecting the next
constant sound of ring tones
of blackberries and i-phones

Clusters of snowdrops, so green and white
Nodding their flowers, such a beautiful sight
Heartening as nature moves towards spring
Hearing the dawn chorus as the songbirds sing.

We really do need to start thinking ahead
Planning for cars and using our head.

creating a skyline
where eagles grace.
looking at the beautiful wild flower meadow
Its rhythm and colour something to treasure
look very carefully and open your eyes
This view of nature will take you by surprise.
