Dunkery Beacon

The heather is burnt and the land starts to curve.
Look all around to where it blankets the ground.
Push at the horizon, another line of balance,
Patchwork fields fragment the distance.

Triangulation and rolling dogs,
Huffing and puffing right up to the top,
Reaching the peak a bonfire of stone.
A huddle of rocks,
Heaped into a throne,
Heaped into the air.

Whipped clouds circle around the grey pointing upwards.
Scorched earth across the tarnished summit.
Rusting raiment.

Hills slip down to the sea,
Green wooded fold,
Folded in ponies.
It's a faint path,
Fainter path,
No path.

The earth curves and the land and the sea curve with it always.
