June 2021


High in pale twilight,
Bats revel in endless days.
Darkness is postponed.



Moist; damp…

Night lays a blanket
of soft rain upon the world,
And with it, silence.



A wet night and the streams singing…

Rain elevates streams
From whispered background chorus
to Prima Donnas.



Glorious profusion of blossom this year, especially the hawthorn…

Whitethorn’s snowy mass
avalanches down hillsides,
softening ditches.
