Morning on the Acreage

The wind filters through
willows
swaying as lithe stalks
of celery
while poplar leaves shake
themselves
in tunes of outdoor living

and partridge slumber
forward
with plodding tracks
persevering beaks poking
the wind of a new day.

I am a voyeur
to their ramblings
my thoughts as footprints
a memory of images
and impressions

wife at my side, love
in the air
and we are partners
in the dance.
