Day 690: Mustard Field

 

I love Alice Oswald's poetry. Visual, subtle, essential.


The Mustard Field - Alice Oswald

From love to light my element
was altered when I fled
out of your house to meet the space
that blows about my head.

The sun was rude and sensible, 
the rivers ran for hours
and whoops I found a mustard field
exploding into flowers;

and I slowly came to sense again
the thousand forms that move 
all summer through a living world
that grows without your love.
