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 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. :)


AmitL said...

Nice to see u're also an early riser(Not surly riser),when do you get up to hear the cuckoo trilling away?:)

austere said...

mister mago the magician- danke schon :)
With the cassia, the Topkapi brown and the blue med, how lone? Not lone.

babyisland- I took one but a red bus got into the frame, let me mail you soon.

sathya- this parrdicular cuckoo practices at five in the am :)

amitl- am up by six, and before the bird the dog squad chorus is at four.
