Castles in the Sky

Clouds at sunset in Wiltshire

Back on the route to relax

Hello everyone; it has been a while! I hope you are all well. I have been busy with work and the day to day chores of life. Yet I hope to focus once again on this website and finding and sharing ways to relax. Whilst I prepare other pages and posts; I would like to share this photo of a great cloud formation I spotted on a cold autumn day. It reminded me of a poem by Atticus:

𝑪𝒂𝒔𝒕𝒍𝒆 𝒊𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒌𝒚
Last night I had a dream
I built a castle with my hands
and put you in it.
But you grew wings
and flew away
and my castle crumbled.
Next day
you returned
and sat amongst the ruins
and told me a secret
of why birds must fly
And so I built you a castle in the sky.

What poems and songs enter your mind as you walk along? I hope you are all well and feeling relaxed.

Start Point stroll
