walking through Reeuwijk Woods, South Holland

clouds
trees
canals

north-westwards


beyond attenuating trees    a flat horizon
speed-rush of tyres on the highway
noise continuum



trucks hauling containers full of shoes    toys    oranges
transporters loaded with new cars
incessant rumble



Doppler shift of a siren approaching    receding
a sun-glinted helicopter’s
rapid percussion

south-eastwards


wind
sighs
silver
birch leaves dance


frogs
croak
among
bulrushes


two
notes
cuckoo
calls    unseen
