The Chase.

 


Four squirrels cling across the

fence, like poorly placed works of

art.

 

Noughts and crosses play out

as the sun drifts over a tree

shadowed lawn.

 

The little dog waits

statue still, paw upraised

ready for that joyous

thrust of speed, any minute

now….

Sue; I’ve just been doing a first read through today’s usual good works but had to come back here at once. I can only doff my feathered cap and bow low to the sublime simplicity in your work; it consistently delights me.

Blessings…..Dodge

You are most welcome Sue. I think what impressed me was the compression of language to create a very visual imagery. I could see it all, immediately and at once.
