More Pictures – Mountain Zebra National Park

The pictures of the Mountain Zebra Park near Cradock in the Eastern Cape in South Africa generated quite a bit of interest, Here are some more pictures taken by other friends recently. I will try and get more pictures that we took a while ago. The Park is a great place to visit. Question: Who have those four naughty junior zebras seen coming? See below.

In Conversation with Kiera – A Poem

I am Kiera. I love the woods. Especially enchanted woods. I have some questions for you. Who am I? What am I? What am I to you? Am I closer to you than you can ever imagine? In the stillness of an enchanted wood I heard you answer me. I have recorded our sacred conversation in a poem. Here it is. Please step softly on my dreams.

IN CONVERSATION WITH KIERA …..

Who or what am I?
A star in the sky?
Or think perhaps I could
Be a nymph in the wood?
A fish that swims maybe?
Delighting in the sea …..
A bird that flies the air?
A pig, cat, horse or bear?
I’m none of these
So help me please ………
“You are LOVE in motion and give devotion
You feed my soul and make me whole
A DOG so wise
In disguise …..
My Brightest Star
That’s who you are!”.

(Kiera lives with her devoted companion Anna in East Sussex, England. Anna also loves and writes poetry.)



East Sussex Snow and Ice – A report by Kiera

I am Kiera from East Sussex in England. What a winter it has been! Plenty of snow and lots of ice. Everyone is talking about the cold weather. Below is a picture of me talking to a donkey friend who told me about a nearby frozen pond on which geese were skating. I could hardly believe it so I went to the pond to see for myself. It was true. Look at the picture I took of the geese on the ice. I am including a gallery of some snow and ice scenes near where I live. Amazing. Keep warm. My dear friend Anna helped me with the pictures. Please scroll down.

Fabulous Machu Picchu Pueblo – A Lesson

“They say the Lion and the Lizard keep
The Courts where Jamshýd gloried and drank deep:
And Bahrám, that great Hunter–the Wild Ass
Stamps o’er his Head, but cannot break his Sleep.”

The shepherd’s warning about a red sky in the morning

Shepherd wisdom: A red sky in the morning is a shepherd’s warning: A red sky at night is a shepherd’s delight.

The red sky warning came true in London today, 24 January 2021. Look at the two pictures taken in London this morning: A red dawn followed by snow a few hours later!
