tanka: the Gold-stone…

.

the Gold-stone

shunned in the city park

where once wheat ripened

quartz lights glint from yellow rock

the sheaves which answered the spell

 

(note: once part of an ancient burial mound; the colour and composition unusual in these chalk-lands, therefore a sacred object. Birth and death. Yet now, stranded and ignored in Hove Park… ).
