Severn Way

Skylarks sing love duets
high above the grassy flood plains.

Suns heat belying early spring
tempered only by deceptive cooling wind.

Haze casts an ethereal vision
of bridges spanning the murky depths.

The constant hum of human intervention
feels locked out of this water's edge oasis.

My soul lifted in peaceful harmony
I feel me, and know this is how it should be.
