It's just poetry, it won't bite

A Breeze on Farmer’s Curfew

07.25.10 Posted in today's words by

John Sherer’s most recent appearance here was Average, part of Contributor Series 5: Dramatis Personae. He writes about a variety of subjects and today’s poem feels a little more cryptic than some of his others. It evokes summer, late summer in fact, and it describes communing with nature, and it’s a lovely addition to John’s body of work. 

A Breeze on Farmer’s Curfew
By John Sherer

I find flowing fields
Cast in setting sun
Whisper, tall grass
Pass by my side
Cow bells to beckon
Summon and reckon
Whisper, the grass
Has swept me by

    This poem is a ‘transporter’. The imagery is so exact that the reader is present. Brilliant.
