No City Noise, Just Peace

Find some peace, no matter where you live…

Birmingham Central Canal, in the heart of the city

No City Noise, Just Nature

Sometimes all we need is just a little bit of nature to soothe the soul. A moment of nature, can help rejuvenate your mind and make you think more clearly. Even myself, I live in a busy city. This can cause much stress, when in the rush hour, but a moment in a park, a walk or a visit on transport to a forest can really help you feel better. And then you are ready to take on the world again. 

This week I aim to go to more natural spaces, but still love the little gems in Birmingham, such as the Peace Gardens.

Little Bracelet of Emerald Leaves

Little bracelet of emerald leaves
Gilded gold forget-me-nots that are entangled beneath my moss tears,
Of a time where we sat among broken twigs, around my feet submerged in the earth’s giving powers.
Hidden dens and flower towers.
And there…… lay the perfect innocent tree,
that built houses and made the fires,
that built the diamonds,
that scraped against the static walls the humans created. Only to make engravings of lost letters and untold secrets.
But I remain in my bed of leaves and tears, my forget-me-not rings, my wheeled wooden carts of flowers. But I have my powerful mind . Hidden untold, My gypsy carriage will guide me to a land of hope and happiness. And along the way I will visit once more, my emerald forest.

The difference in me

IMG_4831

Difference in the fields, to you and me

Moving, gliding, soothing our inner being

my hand held yours, close in the emerald open land before us

we moved so quickly, away from the noise

moving through bracken and golden wheat,

that gave warmth to our cold toes and feet

We were different from the rest

We were uncrowded with human minds

foolish ways, religion, or anyone  following road signs

we were free, to be who we wished 

to speak when we wanted to speak,

to live our lives with clarity of voice, harmony and peace

The little cart girl was free

The Forest Tale

 

The Forest Tale
I listened to you tell the tale
Of the keeper of the forest.
She knew the secrets of the ribbons
These grew and cascaded on the living branches
Each autumn they were FREE
Each spring they grew nearer to me
And grew inside of my seeping heart
That burnt just like the nearest star.
Until Livina placed her feet in the dark soil
Living
Breathing
Constantly reproducing
Loving all life forms around

Look after our forests

My Walk Home

People Rush too much in the Big City

Rushing everywhere! trying to get home, buy shopping, people look so very stressed sometimes. Friday I walked through the big city I work in. I often wish to leave the big city for solace. I was determined that day to achieve all the things I have said to my students… Please sometimes STOP and notice things around you! Experience this wonderful diverse city.  I normally walk a little, then get on a bus/train to take me home. Missing obviously the buzz of the city, the aromas of the foods, the bright colours of the many shops and the little hidden parks, along the way. Beautiful colours of materials and architecture.

There are also so many buildings with amazing tea and coffee shops, with the most amazing cakes. The very older buildings have the most ornate and beautiful sculptures… Bringing old and new a exciting place to visit. My favourite of all places in Birmingham, is the canal network, with its many restaurants, bars and winding paths. Little gems of nature along the way. It is for me a ‘quiet zone’.

Beautiful rainbows of colours

magical melodies of sounds of people 

rushing by, with many bags in hand

culturally diverse and inspirational 

wonderful aroma’s of diverse foods

Wonderful togetherness 

Birmingham my home town

My first beautiful wonder of nature, that made me smile was a beautiful lone flowerbed, just outside of work. Often ignored by so many. Many small areas have been given seeds of wildflowers, to attract bees into the city. Poppies festoon around flowerbeds and ‘pop up’ from cracks in the roads… beautiful lone little weeds and flowers, amongst concreate and man-made city chaos and the overwhelming fumes of transport.

I took this photograph of a little tiny corner by where I work. The Poppies were beautiful 

 

I will continue to discover the little beautiful things in my rushed city. Such as our beautiful gardens in our amazing library, that I love so very much. Brummie and Proud!!
