The invitation of wild hope

The shift is discernable. You can sense it in the air.

And on the lake, the birds are gathering…


Not packaged in
little sachets you can
buy at the chemist,
nor order online
like a quick fix for
Wild hope is free,
and costs everything.
Just watch the birds,
they don’t have plan B.

+ Sue Heatherington

Yesterday morning on the lake: Swans, Canada Geese, Goosanders, Mallards, Moorhens… and I am sure the Little Grebes were there somewhere, underneath the surface.

Pause. See differently. Re-story 🌿
