Rutland WaterNo buildings, traffic or persistent people

to disturb the still water reflecting the green and English landscape

still and not a breath of air to cause a single ripple

that would dare to shatter the peace

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA the empty cricket hut

once used to serve the white and cream clad cricketers

who play no longer but leave behind

times that once were,

old objects, signs and broken windows

an empty shell that is lost to old times

but still contains musty memories and gentle peacefulness


and the row of trees caught my eye

I thought of French painting when Impressionism made gentle brushstrokes on canvas

and scenes of rural landscapes and a certain type of long-lost peace

was captured to make us feel nostalgic

and make us reminisce
