East Dinmore and Bodenham Lakes

Burning sun,
sheltered, silent wood,
quiet stroll
(one patch of squelchy mud),
then hot open ride awhile,
and back...

To what? (IP)

Posted on Wed, 16 Jul 2014

Posted on Sat, 12 Jul 2014

I liked this very much too. Concise, but not obscure. Actually, I thought that the rhino's horn looks like a pointed bone, so poetic licence! Particularly liked 'Labouring body lumbers' alliteration.
