Friends Clump

 

Stamp feet

Stride out

 

Mud in ruts

Hoof pocked

 

Clenched fists

Wind bites

 

Jaw aches

Hunker down

Cold gnaws

 

Sullen sky

 

Mustard gorse

Fallen needles

Bracken brown

 

forest vista creates panoramic patchwork of sepia

 

Sun

clefts cloud.

Magic paintbrush

colours heathland with creeping

 yellow wash. Soft floodlight reveals the stage.

 This is the place. Taking turns to circumambulate.

Peppering the roots of the Scots Pine with his ash.

Where they embrace, entwine. Nourish. Mulch.

This conifer will be the finest in the forest.

Sun fades. We shiver, pick pine cone

keep sake and make

our way

home.
