Random Photo: Green Fuse, Green Age

wildflowers rain trespass park

You bow your white heads
to the rain, push, burn
the green fuse*, and
the birds sing wildly at night
and I push
like ice
through a green age.

A photo a day keeps the Doctor in play.

Bonus rain:

*Tiny homage to, or theft from Dylan Thomas. I always assume in writing my squibs pilgrims and seekers will have read poets like Thomas, but I also know perfectly well that many poets young and old have not.

  1. “She, too, pursues her ends,
    Brutal as the stars of this month,
    Her pale head heavy as metal.”

    Thanks for this, Dr O. I’m old enough to have recognised the DT from the post heading, even before I’d read what you wrote.

    I rarely comment, but enjoy your posts.

  2. Terrific through the looking glass pond, the natural narcissism of the earth transmogrified, denied, a barter amongst so many of the kingdoms of beholding. As for the great green fuse fest,
    trifids is as trifids does.
