My contribution is a poem written in September 2018 when I established a 'writing for well being' group to document the changing seasons and encourage people to spend time outdoors in natural surroundings. We began by observing the river Nene's journey.

Watch the river flow

Slow down

Watch the river flow

Intent upon

Its steady journey.

Turn towards

the late summer sun,

Light reflected

In the silver river.

Tune in

To a gentle percussion

Of tapping and clicking

As reeds bob in the breeze.

Slow down

There is no need to hurry.
