Winter Evening, My Place

I can see the grey rain
hanging heavy in the clouds over there
coming down close to cover the mountains.
I can almost feel it in the cold air
which tingles like fine drops of water.

Two green lorikeets with deep red beaks
tumble above me, flying low
and disappear, shrieking in play,
into the bottlebrush tree.

  4. The mountain weather is familiar to my landscape, but those lorikeets add an image to my mind. I've enjoyed your offerings for the River, Rosemary.

  5. Yes, I see that this is like the mirror image (in reverse) of your 'Promise'. :) I enjoy yours too.
