A momentary glow. Warm evening embers.
Tender shoots blessed with hazy radience. Others by purple shadows.
Air-formed dew already in the air. Grass seed on my damp shoes. and
my mind full of nothing but the colours…
Yet with this child’s-eye view come a throng of
memories unbidden yet welcome.
The beading of dew held fast in a rough leaf’s core. The joy of discovery!
In a wink of blue from part-submerged marble. A dusty meteorite.
More remembrances. The endless evenings,
views from Summer bedtimes when it was too, too light for sleep.
Cobwebs swaying from the deep hedgerow.
Tall trees casting banded shapes down a twilit lane.
