Below the blue sky

 

A gum tree with hanging bark,

feathery leaf cushions

and blue sky, becoming lighter towards its base.

 

A grass field moving towards it,

pale green and yellow.

Shadows against the fence.

 

The blinding sun above distant trees –

colourless, flat, already black

in its glare.

 

Twi-owwut twut twow

twowwwit

 

Two objects – an oval pebble,

patterned by grass shadows and sunlight –

a down feather, swivelling like

a compass.
