The Dip Between Hills and Peaks

The Dip Between Hills and Peaks

Soft swift sunset sweeps across dry grass

And tiny gaps between tight-lined almond

Trees.

Black bellied starlings perch on stringed

Power lines with weathered wings waiting to

Fly.

 

Black outline of factory pipes and towers

In front of vibrant oranges and pinks and

Yellows.

A soft divide between end of daylight

And dawn of night time plays in shifting

Patterns.

 

Day tomorrow may bring blistered heat

Or shifting breeze but this moment sings

 

Perfection.
