  1. Return to the Wild

Large wheels turning
Engines pumping
Ponies pulling
Stones crushing
Tall chimneys pointing
Like fingers
Into the dark, dirty skies

Birds now singing
Bees are buzzing
Rabbits grazing
Buds are shooting

As earth reclaims the wilderness
Which is truly hers once more

This is the piece I made for the Quilters Guild A.G.M. Wild West Challenge.
It was a photograph I took of a derelict tin mine, which I covered with black chiffon and stitched.
I wrote the poem to describe how it made me feel being there.

This is another regular visitor at this time of year
I love the way it always eats upside down.

Colourful Visitor

I have been trying to get a picture of this visiting woodpecker for ages. It visits most days but is very nervous.
