NaPoWriMo 2011 - # 21

# 21

do not agitate

Found an old draft and did some editing...

field of grass

the morning sun stretches on a field
of wild grass and mimosa

soaking them in a warm wash
of golden lights and gentle wind.

a pair of egrets drop in, white wings
flapping, looking for breakfast.

there is nothing between the grass
and a vast blue of sky

but perhaps in a month

the grass-cutters' blades
will shave their heads.

Hi Lynn,

thanks for visiting! it's kind of strange when i realised that this blog was the site of the day. this is a happy surprise. :)

the graphic was done with the help of an on-line generator. thought i would inject some humour before the post. :)

i saw these birds in a field one morning on my way to work, and it inspired this work. :)
