This year the corner cassia is in bloom, a showy all-gold Monet. Quite unlike the washed out pales last year.
Still, the cuckoo trills pre-dawn to a single star pinned to the sky

Sheer genius as always Austere...you could title it "Swati and it would read like a poem then. Separate the last line from the main body - visualy more appealing that way. Is this another one of your 'subs'?

austere said...

Thank you.

No, not a sub. :)

Do you have pictures? I need to know what this looks like. Although in your words I know it is beautiful. :)

New word for me trills - rapid alteration of a note :)


But you would be awake so early to listen to the bird etc :-/ ?

I just cant get myself off the bed. :)

With the cassia, the Topkapi brown and the blue med, how lone? Not lone.
