This collection of poetry was written between April 2020 and October 2021, during the various lockdowns and attempts to carry on with life in some manner in circumstances that were very challenging. The poem that started it all was written when I heard that my ex-husband had been involved in an accident while riding his bike. After that I continued to write about my experiences during this period. Being allowed out for exercise, I started walking around local parks and a nearby lake. I photographed the birds and wildlife I came across and, as the seasons changed, so did the colours of the plants and trees, as they went through their annual journey of new blooms and shiny green leaves to the falling brown of autumn. This is what inspired many of the poems in the book. There are other poems that came from memories and thoughts of films and music I had enjoyed. There was a lot of time for reflection and I am glad that I put all of my thoughts down on paper.

Carol Jones was born in Leicester in 1954. After leaving a local grammar school at the age of 16 Carol had a variety of jobs and travelled a great deal, sometimes penning poems for her own pleasure. It was not until 2020 and the lockdown that affected the entire world that she began to write poems regularly about the things that were affecting her and how she viewed the world around, turning to nature as she had always found nature reassuring as a child.
