Just simply to arrive

When taking to the water on my night paddle on one of the UK’s most reminiscent lakes, Coniston, the emotion of the journey gave me tranquillity and yet close comfort. It wasn’t long before my mind began to wander.


Water black as ink
Luminescent confetti
Of the hawthorn tree
Parts in the wake
Canoe knife like
On waters still
Panoramic excellence
Of a moonlit night
Freedom intoxicating
Of woodland fragrance
Journey to……
Simply arrive
