12 June: #SOCS Spring Green

 Image by Thomas Hart Benton, Spring Cave. Man napping by a river and a rocky cave on a grassy hill.

The Grassy Margins

Nature’s apparition
is a green garb,
blissful colour
spilling from itself.
We tangle into its
bouquet margins,
we, who find ourselves
in a cuckoo’s shoes,
displaced in green.

for Linda Hill’s #SOCS, prompt: write a piece based on an image. Image by Thomas Hart Benton, Spring Cave, 1955. A new musical find for me, Cosmo Sheldrake, who’s producing some very interesting sounds. This cut is Cuckoo Song, from Wake Up Calls, which was created over a nine year period, using recordings of bird song featured on the red and amber lists of endangered British birds (with the exception of a Robin and a Blackbird, which aren’t endangered – yet). ©Misky 2022 Shared with #amwriting on Twitter

  1. We’ve just had a well needed rain and I would say our landscape is a “blissful colour spilling from itself”…I just love those lines. I’m going to have to explore Cosmo Sheldrake, what a delightful song.
