Share-a-Merit Bench

early yesterday morning

sitting on an old wooden bench
by the river bank at Kirkstall Abbey
feeling the water of compassion
flowing
everywhere

And
all around
nature’s awakening
from
winters of deep sleep

Thank you, dear reader, in Leeds Yorkshire.

One thought on “Share-a-Merit Bench”

  1. A wonderful picture and poem. The last line with the plural “winters” opens up a whole dimension beyond the worldly experience, while staying in the world
