Taking a different road

the mysterious hour between
day and dark
full of secrets and
lurking shadows
things not seen clearly
inanimate objects mistaken for animate
shapes indistinct
taking on different meanings
and furtive meetings.

mist hangs heavy on the fields
covering rapeseed
with a gossamer fine quilt
providing nourishment and water
to the growing plants.
mist hangs heavy on the fields
shrouding this crop in
mystery and disguise
hiding its contents
from the eyes on the road.

the sun reluctant to yield
blazing forth
a final burst of light and colour
the moon nudging the sun
on its way
pulling a blanket of stars into place
blowing away secrecy and intrigue.
