March haibun

storm grey sky –
coconut smelling gorse
blossoms yellow.

A blustery March day, the wind propels us along the path to the small lake. Here, tufted ducks float with windblown head tufts. Two swans glide on the water, one with its head and neck under water. Frogspawn gathers round the stems of aquatic plants near the lakeshore. We turn to walk back the way we have come.

Skeins of geese
emerge from the mist –
open moorland.
