A poem by Andy Thompson – written on Branscombe beach on the day of the Winter Solstice 2011.
Buzzard on telegraph pole colours; ‘winter-solstice’ grey skies.
Walking dogs on; raincoat, walking-boot, beaches,
all wrapped against nature –
which is asleep and simply waiting for the season of rebirth,
From this point onwards feel more life from the sun,
Feel more life in your heart and more life in your soul!
