Living at the foot of Grabbist in the beautiful medieval village of Dunster is a blessing. There have been many hours spent enjoying walks exploring woodland, moor, beaches and coastal paths and whilst I am finding it easier to be up in time for dawn, this was the first time I have ventured up through Grabbist’s woods to watch day break over the Quantocks.
Inspiration was at my side. Images caught, words flowed to become the poem below. I trust you enjoy and that you may catch a glimpse of how it felt and more …
Happy October everyone!
As new day dawns and wonder breaks
Grabbist’s woodland whispers wake,
Sun, frisky, round – his smile bold
Now risen shining dressed in gold.
Tis rosy pink and misty too
This quiet dawn October view.
The rabbits, blackbirds and the deer
They’re all awake and with me here.
A stag stands guarding peaceful doe
With quiet grace and strong repose
His presence proud, inspiring poise
Live well today and feel Life’s joys.
