Cinquain 22

Orion constellation

awake
we two, briefly
in the dark early hours;
through the window glimpsed – Orion
shining

taken
with the current –
five brown ducks in a row
like little feathered coracles
spinning

volley
upon volley,
crows rush screaming northward;
moon waits in silence for the clouds
to shift

white moon –
symbolic of
inconstancy yet rides
beside us, all one hundred miles
from home

drifting –
cherry blossom,
haystalks, leaves in fire guise,
snowflakes – through the slideshow of the
seasons

dawn-sky

Window
facing the dawn;
the swelling song of rooks
and pigeons, as this glass picture
brightens

maize crop
seven feet tall
valiantly holds the field
against the creeping shadows of
autumn
