seeing in the mist

It rained again today
as I was leading my American guests out of the field
where they were astonished to find themselves
alongside Angus Halfhorn standing for a tickle
– while we sat to wait for the curiosity of calves
to bring them closer.

Ironically, I am still hauling water from the tap in the barn
it needs done this evening when the demand for showers is greatest
the water that fell earlier is risng as mist
clinging to the trees like fleece,
forming drifts over the river
dividing the landscape
into seen
and unseenImage
