So atmospheric, Sean. Love Norah's poem too
Thanks Norah for your encouraging comments and the lines you quote in that poem are sheer genius. I know the imagery is supposed to be metaphors, but the word metaphor doesn't do it justice, I think. What I love is the author taking a completely different approach, with the tree a tent of light, sunlight weaving and sunlight in sheaves, which the wind unweaves and then reweaves! Wonderful stuff!
Sean, you caught the feeling of a lovely walk on a cool shaded laneway on a hot summer's day in June. I came across this poem which reminds me of wandering around listening to bees buzzing and buzzards soaring overhead yesterday -
A Hot Dayby A.S.J. TessimondCottonwool clouds loiter.A lawnmower, very far,Birrs. Then a bee comesTo a crimson rose and softly,Defly and fatly cramsA velvet body in.A tree, June-lazy, makes A tent of dim green light.Sunlight weaves in the leaves,Honey-light laced with leaf-light,Green interleaved with gold.Sunlight gathers its raysIn sheaves, which the wind unweavesAnd then reweaves - the windThat puffs a smell of grassThrough the heat-heavy, tremblingSummer pool of air.
