Wind and water

When there is only sky
and waving tree line
and tall grass a silent crowd

when there is no sound
but the complaint of leaves in the wind
a lone nightingale in the hedge
and the swollen stream
shouting from its bed

when the world is wind and water
we hold our breath
beneath the shoaling clouds
whale-black jostling
and wait for the deluge.

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.
