Dragonflies skid along the marshland
Which foams every shade of topaz
Ripples that make the water dance
As though the stream
Has something to laugh at.
I’m in the fisherman’s domain
Observing in the rain.
Grey shades which paints
A sombre background
For the barges rage
Making its presence known
But nature dapples the banks
Painting it every shade of summer lax
And vivacious fuchsias
A symphony of rustles in the wind
Transporting me to a different world
Even if only momentarily.
