Summer Afternoon Silences - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

light reflects
from wind whispered flax leaves
in still breeze
of summer afternoon silences
a poet ponders

    Yes Mark, I have a concept that nature is a series of images, we respond to images we like with happiness and emotive feeling, this poem was part of a series of image poems 'A Tui In Flight', 'To Gravity Bend', 'Summer Afternoon Silences', 'Erecting Materialism's Sand Castles' and 'Ill Fated Sand Castles'; which were all split images from the poem 'Flax Stems Pierce Pale Blue Skies'.
    'Heavier Now Rain Falls' was another of about the same time, as the Complete version of the split images 'Shades Of Rain Wet Flax', 'Red Crimson Rata Flowers Flame' and 'Hidden Lost Karamea Valleys'; as derived from the poem 'Fills View Window Of My Rooms'.
    I think minimal grammar or no grammar captures nature more accurately sometimes, because nature does not stop start for capitials except in a few horrific instances like earthquakes, tsunami etc.
