Hay up there!

It was a cool morning —

And a mist was rising up from the hay bales in the field.

Mist rising.jpg

As always, my favourite model poses for me against the rising sun.

“Hay down there!” she seems to say.

She was pretty pleased with herself

For jumping up so high.

“I’ve got to bale now!” she says, and then jumps down

To go home.

(Hope these bad puns aren’t the last straw.)

  70. I love your puns! And also Ruby…she’s sure a beauty. And I have never given it any thought since I started seeing those big rolled-up hay bales instead of the much smaller ones formerly in use, but of course they would hold heat! Silly me.
