Lay lines

Photo by Neil Bailey

Not the mystical lines of energy
but tracks
made by machines
across the land.

Avenues of green
through crops
waving in the breeze
beneath the flitting skylarks.

Lines to enter
lay down
lower myself
beneath the green horizon
and look up
through the fronds now above me
into the blue beyond.

Muted sounds
vision of the heavens
between organic curtains
permeated
with the scent
only new growth can emit.

A moment of peace
of connection to the earth
as I lay in the lines
and listen
to the loquacious landscape.
