...while waiting for the mist to clear a little I spotted this angelic fern holding some spiders webs in the morning light.

Taken this Sunday morning.

FERN

Here is the fern’s frond, unfurling a gesture,
Like a conductor whose music will now be pause
And the one note of silence
To which the whole earth dances gravely –

A dancer, leftover, among crumbs and remains
Of God’s drunken supper,
Dancing to start things up again.
And they do start up – to the one note of silence.

The mouse’s ear unfurls its trust.
The spider takes up her bequest.
And the retina
Reins the Creation with a bridle of water.

How many went under? Everything up to this point went under.
Now they start up again
Dancing gravely, like the plume
Of a warrior returning, under the low hills.

Regards Nathan

Fascinating ferns, Dougie. All held in place by those gosssamer threads, like the wires of a suspension structure..

A wonderful crop, broad, generous and expansive, spreading its wings.

I now understand your message Dougie - how funny we were both on the same track at the same time, although a few hundred miles apart! The backlit ferns look beautiful in the morning light with the tiny webs seeming to hold them in place. Smile
