What I saw today

I took the family dog for his walk again in an English winter. It is such a shock to the senses coming from the Australian summer and very stimulating as a result. The air and ground was drenched with moisture – no frost today. Again the chore of walking Barney brought me unexpected delights. Two peacocks and a pea-hen in an unexpected place and this:

Two rose hips

curves touching

hard polished

by the sea of dew.

Their tips crown into green.

Winter-dead branches lie behind them.
