Old and unwanted, they take on a new life. Wrapped around a family of worms, to keep their home warm for the winter. One woman’s trash is their gold.
High on the crest of a hill, the dusky sun catches it, turning the trees into burning fire-brands. Colours flash as the breeze catches them. Red, yellow, brown, gold; each one flickering in its own spotlight.
It buzzes busily around an early-flowering plant. Its bright yellow flowers are attractive and full of nectar. Moving happily from one to the next, it fills its stomach with this life-giving gold.
