W & N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm
A familiar scene in Tarlton (South Africa) – Many of the smallholdings are lucky enough to have little canals running through them, therefore no need to rely on just borehole water.
There’s a mutilated fence post staring at me
coated in all of nature’s debris.
Rotted wood covered in vines,
each year the post’s wellness declines.
The leaves growing off are of green and red.
The vines themselves I believe are all dead.
All around are weeds and overgrown grass.
It’s a poor little fence post the plants all harass.
It changes each season with more or less
leaves and vines, though still in distress.
An overgrown jungle of rural neglect.
We live in the country what do you expect?
