Early evening walk

Early evening walk with the black wolf……..along the green lane, on the left the hills and high places of Ceredigion, on the right the spaces of Carmarthenshire…….bowing willowherb – more fluff than flower now – the last flush of pale fragrant honeysuckle and the first flush of plump blackberries. A magpie moth. Light rain on the oaks. Soft grey clouds billowing like a dandy’s wig and slipping silently across the wide skies. A young fox picking its way across the field, oblivious to us. Golden end-of-day sun through the rowan.
