Head in the clouds

A Rengay by Bill Waters & Caroline Skanne

hedgerow —
100 starlings
rise up

sunlight in the silver birch
so much laughter

a cooling breeze
through shrubs and trees . . .
my head in the clouds

waning sun . . .
a ladybird enters
the conversation

hidden in the hawthorn
sparrows rustle the shadows

last scrap
of twilight vanishes
with the fox

One thought on “Head in the clouds

  1. A lovely piece by two excellent poets! I love that it began with “hedgerow” and grew into a quiet observation of nature and life.
