Prompt Nights – When besotted with Green [8] – My Ocean of Green

2013-04-22 16.20.55

Out my back door

And just over my back fence

Is my ocean of green.

Rich fodder crops, quickly grown

They are lush and productive.

In the wind waves streak across them.

The farmer mows and rakes

And in the dead of night

He bails and stores his cash crop,

He leaves the field barren and brown.

Within a week there is regeneration

The ocean of green reappears

Grows deep, home to field mice

Rabbits and a wily fox.

A majestic hawk hovers

Surveying the green carpet

Swoops down for take away.

I know I am fortunate

My green ocean view

Will always be mine.
