Field and Moon

Field & MoonA field beside the River Tweed.  The skein of geese gone, the sky pink along the horizon, the air on the edge of freezing, the first day of winter. Not yet four o’clock in the afternoon.

First Frost 3

afrost3This miniature rose has survived outside for four years now, and this will be its last flower of the year. The bright leaves of the acer outside the door have suddenly darkened and shrivelled. Driving back from Melrose this evening, it is dark by four o’clock.  We stop at St Boswells to have cappucinos and a shared brownie in the Main Street Trading Bookshop. Then as we head towards Coldstream, the moon lights up the road ahead with a wash of silver. The clear sky is banded with shades of blue, mauve-pink, pale yellow and then deeper blue overhead, while behind us the horizon that was outlined against the orange of the invisible sun slowly fades into shadow.  At five o’clock it feels like night. As December begins, suddenly it is winter.
