#Words and #PictureOfTheDay: 28/Mar/22

It is not alone
this road through trees
here are quite a few
some in good condition
others slowly rotting
but why are they here
in this haven of nature
what is or was their purpose
up to eighty years ago
they served as routes
to carry coal iron stone
dug from the ground
beneath the trees
to the main line
railway that also
once split through
this forest
how quiet it lies now
how sweet now
nature has returned
to recover land
once made bare
and toxic
by the vanity
and greed of man

You can view a few more of my pictures in the Gallery.
Or search over 2000 of my images you might like to use for book covers, calendars, greetings cards, jigsaws, advertising, or anything else you fancy in print or online, or to order as art quality prints to decorate your home or office.

    1. There are many in the forest, Noelle. Some still in use by the Forestry Commission when logging, but many being allowed to slowly go back to nature, with fallen leaves forming a covering of compost turning into soil. And some that have disappeared altogether now that nature has absorbed them.
