And overnight it’s summer

April 18, 2018




And overnight it’s summer
The ground is soft and gives underfoot, malleable after so much rain
Animal tracks inviting, not yet overgrown
Soft baby origami-folded horse chestnut leaves dropping to the ground
Occasional up-drafts lifting leaves from the ground, to hover and drift like chestnut coloured birds
Frenzied birds in the trees and undergrowth
Chiffchaff quaking and vibrating it’s wings at the top of the trees
A vole venturing out, rummaging in leaf litter
One small forked twig caught on a branch dancing and bobbing in the breeze
Dry twittering of last years beech leaves bristling against each other
