photography by Robert Evans

In the distance striped fields of ochre and green show how
one day, soft topped grasses moved like waves in the wind
and how a passing Massey Ferguson laid them down, unresisting
into rows like palomino manes, subdued and willing to embrace
the sun, heat up, dry out, offer up body and blood
as fodder for ruminations of cattle and poets and
farmers at the Feed and Tack.

  1. There's so much to love about these words Lesley-Anne! ...a passing Massey Ferguson laid them down,unresisting(the word passing is inspired!It just happened by without intent)......subdued and willing...offer up body and blood as fodder....
    Acceptance rings throughout, ... To me you are saying don't fight what is happening, accept it and all will be as it should, and it will be good. :) This may only be my intepretaion, but that's what I love about poetry.
    ...ruminations of cattle and poets.. LOVE IT!
