The West Barns renga

Tomorrow’s rainbows

a solo renga written 21/09/2013, West Barns  to Belhaven Bay

a sunny morning
but the air is cooling down,
the light not so strong

moon-white bindweed on brambles
Himalayan balsam so far from home

stream bubbles along
sound of the rain that fell
in the hills yesterday

black spots on sycamore leaves
butterbur parasols turning brown

harvester in corn
left storm-flattened rows
ears bent, uncut

distant traffic waves
then a sudden goose above

toots from the wee train
our grandchildren enjoyed
when they were small

long hot days
drying out the saltmarsh

grassy dunes
that used to be
an island

a watery track remembered
as icy, slippery, taking great care

the Bass Rock dark
against grey clouds
a few blue gaps

planting spring bulbs
                for tomorrow’s rainbows.
