26 June – Little orange helicopter

My warren watching
on the field side track
is rudely interrupted
by the sudden blur and buzz
of a little orange helicopter
darting through the tree canopy,
like a tiny drunken pilot
is testing out his moves.
Unexpected colour,
iridescent in the sun,
demands my attention rises
above hillside hopping fun.
Spot it if you can,
before it speeds away,
the first dragonfly of summer
dived across my path today.
