roaming in the gloaming

~

roaming in the gloaming  (  gnimaolg eht ni gnimaor  )






rabbits on the pastures

hopping as a bean

bursting is the blackbird's

stuff of in between


muffles in the shuffles

flutter butterfly

moths emerge & circle

shepherds scan the sky


red above & smiling

silver, gold & chrome

clouded shrouds of mackerel

cows are coming home


nightingales in copses

hymn the dales & lark

hark, the trot of foxes

rabid badgers bark


whispers in the grasses

chatters in the ear

green becomes the blackness

people disappear


burglars are stirring

phantoms on the prowl

wander in this whirring

til the owlets howl


gleaming is the evening

see the rivers run

roaming in the gloaming

sinking with the sun


spinning on a sixpence

after afternoon

squinting eyes & skyward

rising with the moon
