Mast

MAST

stark
sharp
sentinel
standing
on top of Winter Hill
illumined by the light
of the early morning sun
seen from my bedroom window
thirty miles away
for the first time
in twelve months
since the counci;
felled the trees
that blocked the view

one hour on -
the moor's outline
fades into the clouds
