A sight for sore eyes – wordle 224

After the harvest the tractor dance
resumes to harrow, lime and sow.
Fourteen days spin by until
from dull brown swathe of stubble
emerges green enough to stun,
a grid of translucent stripes
across the span of my armchair view
Who would have dreamed
of such fertility sprouting
inviting me to trample
through November fields
in search of pictures and poetry.

How quickly green growsImage:  It seems like magic, taken at three pm, today, 8th November 2015

I used all but two of today’s Wordle words, and today’s view also fits Miz Quickly’s prompt

    It is never cheating when you are inspired an your piece fits more than one prompt!
    No green here for awhile with November bringing chilled winds.
    But our lawn is still green.

    I don’t know how you manage to conjure these up! Quite incredible, Viv. 🙂

    Seems like a metaphor for writing itself…ploughing..sowing..planting…and hopefully watching something wonderful bloom

  5. very nice. I liked how you used the word grid:

    a grid of translucent stripes

    I had to investigate your use of the word harrow, which was new for me –
    I was disappointed, because i looked your piece over twice hoping to see how you might have used vapid – but it wasn’t there –
    it e-vapid-erated!

    MAN, do I ever love the way these words fit together:
    “dull brown swathe of stubble
    emerges green enough to stun”
