Chard Reservoir – A Poem

This week I have found my new happy place - Chard Reservoir. It is just a 15 minute drive up the road and is full of beautiful wildlife.

Chard Reservoir

An expanse of water
So big and wide
Who knows how many
Wonders it hides

Finding some solitude
Both evening and morning
The bright orange sky
End of day and when dawning

A gull over Chard Reservoir August 2016

So many different
Calls of bird song
All of them beautiful
Some short and some long

A Crested Grebe
Elegant, glides by
A flash of blue
As the Kingfisher flies

Chard Reservoir August 2016

The Robin and Sandpiper
Side by side
Such wonderful sights
Right here in this hide

Peaceful and tranquil
No one around
This is my new happy
This place that I’ve found
