As I walk along the river’s edge
In the early morning light
Spider webs glistening silver
Among the shoreline shrubs
The day’s first sunlight
Flickering through the leaves
Producing a dappled pattern on the forest floor
A small stream of pristine water
Merges into the ever-moving river
Stately Pines and towering Spruce
Stand guard at the water’s edge
The clear cold water
Is home to the colorful Brook Trout
Rising to the surface
In the deeper pools
Feeding on the emerging Mayflies
Here and there the undergrowth
Chokes the river banks
A dead tree layered
With fungi and moss
Lays in my path
Which I carefully step over
As I walk down the river
Ferns a bright green
With new Spring growth
Grow thick here and there
Along the river’s edge
A kingfisher all red,blue and white
Darts down the river
Vanishing into the shadows
One of my favourite pastimes is spending the day walking along a river.Enjoying the moment and looking to see what is around the next bend.
I hope everyone had a great New Years and I am looking forward to the new year.Thank you all for visiting and until next time happy trails
