Out Walking

Haiku and Photograph

It has been a stranger winter in the way the temperatures have swung more widely than we expect and therefore the blood does not seem to have been able to adjust and thicken up for me to feel comfortable for the colder temperatures. Lovely sunny days with no wind one day, a gale with waterfall rain the next and a 15*C drop. Therefore I have spent too much time inside knitting for the new grandson and sitting around in a warm house. Oops, the back starts to stiffen up and the scales say a couple of kilos could be being added. First day of Spring and time to make sure I get back to walking every day, not just on  the pleasant days. 

Below is a Haiku, traditional in the 5,9,5 consonant-count, but by not defining which exact season makes it fail - but I was so bemused by what I found out walking I thought it needed a wry comment to go with the photo I took.


Sunlit paths beckon
but a gate repels the curious.
How strong the padlock?
