At the river

At the river you can smell this autumn afternoon.

Colours cloak the banks with trees,

grasses, ferns and fading bracken strewn

around a brace of bright blobs-

one red, one yellow and each staring into the sky

at an object moving up, then sideways

dropping down to hover but not to fly. This drone

records the river scene below

and two hi-vis operators check pictures of violent water

running through split and channelled stone.
