gogyohka for a scarecrow

A gogyohka sequence for Frank Tassone’s weekly challenge

Vincent_van_Gogh_(1853-1890)_-_Wheat_Field_with_Crows_(1890)

in the field

a tattered man

of sticks and rags

silent stands beneath a sky

heavy with crows

 

heavy clay the orange earth

and sky grey

slicked with orange light

furrowed field full of crows

no bundle of sticks will scare

 

I watch you

with your helpless hands

and sightless face

that feels neither sun nor rain

scorned even by the birds

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
