No. 155 “A little line of ants” – 13/6/16

A little line of ants is crossing my backyard

All undeterred by the rocky way and hard

In the twilight rain trickles onto hard packed ground

Thick quilted clouds in grey muffle any sound

I’m leaning on the back door, drinking in red air

The silence seems to say, speak only if you dare

Dark green trees against a rain heavy sky

The restless wind has stilled, and no bird wants to fly

The trees nod in the stillness, to cicadas singing

And the little line of ants goes on, ignoring raindrops flinging
