Fields of yellow ochre

In fields of yellow ochre
wandering, carefree as a cloud
drifting on a summer breeze
I felt a richness here endowed
The chalky soil beneath my feet
hard packed by days of sun
and through the haze the shine of sea
on this day that’d just begun

Life here has just awoken
high on the Sussex Weald
exuding beauty all around
as wonder is revealed
And accompanied by jasmine
fragrant in the air
a prayer of thanks I whispered
for the joy of being there
