At the far corner of the land, a lonesome blackbird is bobbing around patches of hardened earth searching for a meal. She is hungry and tired, searching since day break with no luck.

The grass flourishes with an enviable absence of weeds,surrounding the cottage and spreads out across the meadow , only interrupted by the solid, circular slabs of concrete trailed from the front door to an overgrown footpath, leading to A river flows close to the edge of the meadow, winding its way past like a serpent. A family of snow white swans glide majestically past, taking in all around, as if surveying their kingdom, all appears to be in order as they continue down the gently flowing waters.By the banks, an otter and his young are frolicking in the shallows, so engrossed in play they are oblivious to the passing shimmering shoal, which they would usually devour in a heartbeat.Unaware of their lucky escape the fish swim on further downstream Night approaches. ...read more.
