Writers' Showcase

Kent (1)
by R L Tilley

High above fields of hops, an orchard of ancient apple trees - a serpent of wood sculpted in the grass, an apple also - sun beats down from an azure sky - the grass grows high and moths flit among the seed heads - No Man’s Orchard on the North Downs Way - A hollow oak and among the graffiti carved on it’s trunk, ‘D-Day, 6.6.1944’ - time telescoped in this ancient land - thanksgiving I photograph the apple boughs.
