On Water xxi

soil crumbled to dust

decorous clouds braid sunset

prayers for rain dissolve

On Grey / On Gray

Start with grey and then

grey’s quite beautiful

On the Rise ii

Hot pockets bubble

Steamy accumulations

Form, swell; fit to burst

n.b. There’s a lot of it about.

On High

Clouds form on warm air

Raptors spiralling upwards

Buzzards high as kites

.

n.b. A wonderful scene. Two red kites circling up from the recently mowed field on an updraft. Far above, just visible to the naked eye, three buzzards on a carousel of rising warm air, their random calls of “ke-whee” carrying across the Glaven valley.

The photograph catches the light, not the graceful flight paths of these big birds, nor indeed the birds, but they were there.

The day clouded over and rain came later.
