July – week 2

 

between stones

and crests of foam…

downriver

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
