All In A Moment – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon




“The wind whispered secrets in its own incomprehensible way.”  Tracy Rees

All In A Moment

I noticed the way
the wind whipped across the paddock,
barley dancing playfully,
swaying this way and that,
at once catching the light,
now becoming shadows,
swirling, bowing, rising
to the applause of the stringybark
and squeaked approval of mudlarks,
all in a moment,
as if just for me.

    Yes, I love those open field moments. The applause of the birds is something that caught my ear here.

  4. I love those rare occasions when it happens just that way. Another 20 seconds and the scene would have been gone, never to have been seen by me. Yesterday, i just happened to glance out the window at the birdies feeding and noticed that one didn’t look quite right. Turns out it was a squirrel come to share their feed. A half minute later he was gone. So lucky I glanced out when I did!
