Light on the Winter Corn

Twixt storm clouds, showers , sunshine, hail, and odd snow flake,

there occasionally appears a tantalising and alluring ray of light

on the winter corn in the distance at certain times.

I have dashed out many a time  only to find the beam

of light already moved on but this time ‘got it’

    • Winter corn is any corn sown in winter instead of early spring. Practise been detrimental for wild birds who in the old days had the winter stubble to pick grains out of. Winter corn has aided the demise of the farmland birds as. after harvest the land is now immediately ploughed and re-sown, leaving nothing but bare ground…which in very wet winters erodes the soil into the rivers as well.
      Nothing but bad stuff happening in ‘developed’ countries, we know it, but carry on regardless, cause we need money.

      • Like dominos, one falling after another. Paula, thank you for sharing this. I’m going to have my students read & discuss the consequences of our actions & the balancing of needs among species.

  1. To me , the composition worked fine and your work was brought all components into balance , mainly due to trees in front of the scenery. That aspect enhanced the effect you nicely wrote . bart

  2. Absolutely wonderful, my friend. Darkish, even brooding maybe, but with those slivers of sunlit green and yellow that set it on fire. And I like the way too that the directions of the walls, and furrows and the hills too, and the yellow and green, all head off to upper right – a landscape in movement, caught between the darknesses of the foreground trees and the brooding sky.

Poet Rummager

I sell collectibles and art online and often find the things I've found have hilarious and at times, dark stories to tell. It's thrilling for me to be creatively random, so always expect the unexpected in the things I share with you.
