A Shoreline in Cornwall

***

 

Calean and Ollie the dog

 

***

   

grey sky grey ice
the stillness unheard
over the wind

***

   rifts in ice,
edge of a bare field
along the shore

***

 

 

 

winter flowers,
the wind
the only sound

 

 

***

 

ice stained red
from fields
once forests

***

 

 

summer’s light,
in bent beachgrass
beneath the ice

 

 

***

twilight,
two crows alight
on a barren tree top

 

 

 

 

 

***

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

***

dusk,
the faraway mist
follows the wind
