Rural Autumnal Landscape

Grazing sheep

make an unspoken decision

to head to the paddock’s troughLike birds,

one tips a wing

and in unison the flock veers

 

A cow discovers

syrup sweet lucerne

and feasts luxuriantly

 

Swifts wheel

upwards

then dip

in the dizzy joy of flight

 

Crickets chirrup

while moths hover

and settle on flower heads

 

Magpie song

heralds from shrubbery,

hidden but heard

 

Afternoon sunshine

spins gold

upon the land
