The earth’s magic play

The fading seams of light

reflect in amber display

across the flattened bay,

and the silken surface

holds the formed light

like a water colourist

plying her art as the

creator of the world anew.


And with this scene I stand

entranced with the vivid

drug of the earth’s

magic play at the going

down of the sun on a

warm and still summer day.
