Pitsford Water circuit

Since I was most certainly not 'in the haibun vein', I offer this ginko - a series of haiku about a walk:

10 .30  am
cars unload people
bikes, boots and backpacks

human sundial
I am the pointer 
time to go

seven sunlit miles
around the water
though the wind blows cold

cowslips bloom
swans swim on the lake
kestrels windhover

JCBs cart stones
to reinforce the banks
water or fishing

the last two miles drag
i could touch the car park
but the path turns away

baguettes and coffee
deferred gratification
nearly 1 pm
