Is it safe?

The March wind roars
Like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by.
When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then spring is here.

Is it safe to go there? I ask a woman who comes walking towards me on the bridge. She empties one of her shoes for water and mud.
She was trying to avoid deep puddles, and her foot disappear into a mud hole instead. I can not laugh at incidences like that, I’ve tried them all.
She is warning me for strong wind gusts.
I don’t find it attractive to swim in the icy water wearing a lot of clothes that will pull me down but the walk is great.

    1. Hi Isabel. Thank you for your kind words. And thank you for bringing my attention to the day.
      I found this poetry by Henry David Thoreau:
      “If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal – that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself.”
      Happy World Day of Poetry to you too ❤

    1. Thanks Dan!! I know it was just a bridge, I had to walk on, and not Mount Everest 🙂
      Maybe it’s an experience from years back. I was heading home from work. It was dark, and the wind blew strongly. I pulled my bike on a narrow path along the house, but when I came out into the open, I was thrown over by the wind. It may well be I was tired that night, but anyway 🙂 🙂
      Happy walks to you,
      Hanna

      1. Hey Hanna
        Please don’t misunderstand me, Its NOT just a bridge !! We have just had loads of wind at home as of late so properly my frustration with that coming to the surface. Any walk anyplace beautiful has its own merit and charm. Dan

      2. Dan, let me say I took my reservations, my title on the post taken into consideration 🙂 🙂
        I’ve done some miscalculations on some of my walks which make me more cautious than necessary sometimes. Once I fell from a mountain in Norway, but was stopped by a little shelf a few meters down the mountainside. I really learnt a lesson there.
        The weather condition is changing rapidly all over the world and we have our share here in Denmark in a minor scale flooding is becoming a problem together with frequent storms but nothing compared to the countries most affected by El Ninjo.
        Thanks a lot for your comments!!
        Hanna

  1. It doesn’t look very safe! I don’t mind cold, sunny weather if you can wrap up and walk on a beach. Your photos are inviting though. 🙂 Have a nice evening, Hanna!

I really would love to have your comment
