The green man sows serpent seedw7 December 2011

The snakes are dry on the rattling tree,
the green man left them
pod melodies weaving,
his counterpoint warns
the sultry December breeze

Too parched to sink
black and spiralling, docile
each reptile crucifixion
impatient to be cut down
before the green man comes again


Seed pods on tree in late autumn in my village of Fa
