The rain is lashing down on what anyone, in a cynical frame of mind, might call a ‘typical’ October day in Cumbria. But in truth, most of October has been sunny and warm, and we were treated to a string of bright days in September that did, in some way, make up for the wet summer months.
So while we sit inside hearing the rain drum the roof, it feels fitting to reflect back on a day in September when we were walking in T-shirts in the fells above the Duddon Valley.
blue sky etched with the calligraphy of planes
the sun roaring into September
with the burning shame of summer neglected
wind licks my face cool
Scafell grabs the spotlight
but see here at your feet
rocks as old as time lichen
