Slow, Summer Days

Some days are made for ambling.

Those slow, soft, warm days,

when the breeze only stirs lazily

and the sun slouches across the sky,

scuttled with wispy mares’ tails,

too relaxed to do much of anything.

Those days are the best for long walks

through country lanes with arching oaks,

and dappled woodlands

with root woven soils

to leave your shoes scuffed

your knees mud streaked

and your hands stained by bark.

Those days should take you places,

those nowhere in particular places,

before finding yourself closer to home

than you would have ever thought.


Daily Prompt: Amble

I’ve been for a couple of walks this year with the other half. I want to see if we can visit Grinshill Hill this month but the weather doesn’t look like it’s going to let up much for a few weeks. I’ve been up it a few times as a child but not in the last five or six years, perhaps longer.

Tell me, what are the places you like to go on those lovely not-too-hot, just right sort of summer days?

Carol Forrester is a twenty-three year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
