August 2021

A brief change in weather…

A curtain descends
– a fine, enveloping gauze.
Midsummer moistness.

****************************

Mushrooms season begins…

Golden trumpets flare
in shady, leaf-gilded woods:,
Chanterelle fanfare.

(20/08/21)

****************************

Despite Covid, life goes on…

A magpie racket:
emptying the bird feeder.
Their “Clack & Collect”!

(13/08/21)

****************************

Happened upon a scene as old as time…

Screaming victory,
talons gripping broken prey,
a hawk hoods a jay.
