Poem at the edge by Juliet Batten | 10, Jul, 2013 | Uncategorized | 14 comments Waders dip their beaks A child dips her hand I dip my pen. Feeding at the edge We find treasure. 14 Comments Penny O'Neill on 10/07/2013 at 14:26 I never tire of your images by the sea, Juliet, nor your little one, gathering. This made for a beautiful and peaceful beginning to my day here. Thank you. Reply juliet on 10/07/2013 at 23:59 Penny, what a lovely comment. Thank you, and I’m glad this brought you peace. Reply Amanda Trought on 11/07/2013 at 16:43 Juliet, the photographs and the words are beautiful, there is so much treasure to be found in your blogx Reply juliet on 11/07/2013 at 21:48 Amanda, thank you for your kind words. Reply Hotly Spiced on 11/07/2013 at 22:56 The images are lovely but I’m wondering how she’s able to run around in bare feet – I’m sure at this time of the year my feet would go completely numb. xx Reply juliet on 11/07/2013 at 23:43 Hi Charlie, I remember being barefooted all year round in Taranaki, which was much colder. Children seem to be tough. It’s also sunny in that little bay, so that would have helped. Thanks for visiting. Reply Ruth P on 13/07/2013 at 04:20 Very beautiful, Juliet! A wonderful example of ‘less is more’. Your post gives us a sense of your two experiences and opens things out for our own memories and discoveries as well!! Reply juliet on 13/07/2013 at 04:26 Ruth, what a lovely comment. Yes, that’s exactly what I wanted to do. As I get older, I like to use fewer words and open up more space. Thank you.
