Summer dies slowly.

The hedgerow wears mourning jewels:

ripe elderberries.

Revealed in sunlight,

black opal iridescence:

the fly’s true colours.

She flirts and dances;

alighting briefly, she wreaks

delayed destruction.

in the shadow of the copse

Stripped branches strain back,

defiance proving futile.

Wind always prevails.

From a sandstone cell,

incoming twilight and tide:

reluctant escape.
