dappled forestI’ve thought about joining in with The Prompt for a while and when I saw that this week’s writing prompt was Beauty I decided to seize the moment!

I’ve been in the Lake District for the last few days and the scenery here is just stunning. The weather is mixed but even ominous, looming clouds have a certain something in this part of the country. It really is beautiful.

Yesterday started off overcast and the forecast didn’t look good but we fancied getting out so headed off up a nearby fell. The views were amazing as we ascended and from the top. Then, on the way down, we found ourselves on a path winding through a forest and the sun suddenly came out surrounding us in dappled light. It was just gorgeous and the photo above doesn’t remotely do it justice.

I’ve been experimenting a bit with micro poetry recently so thought I’d try and capture what I saw in that form:


   Shards of light



tangled trees


                      the earth

with sunbeams

      Thank you! It was a lovely peaceful scene – even my kids were struck dumb for a few minutes by the beauty of it all!

    There really is something about dappled light through trees that is quite magical and very beautiful. I love your micro poem, so much said in so few words. I love the structure of it too. Fabulous. Thank you so much for linking to #ThePrompt absolutely lovely to have you join in xx

    I adore your poetry and the way you connect it to your week of activities.
    The presentation of this micropoem adds the cherry for me.
    Brilliant x
