July – week 2


between stones

and crests of foam…


from the weir of this day

to bathe with dippers   *


no cattle today

just swallows skimming

the empty meadow


a beetle 

deep in the tangled core

of a field poppy…

in the tissue folds of sleep

the pollen of my dreams


modern farming…

three poppies

at the field’s edge


jasmine breeze…

the cortex expands

with stars



* follow this link to see a dipper
