The small clump of bushes, which is beneath the old windmill located down by the creek is almost always going under water in the rainy season.  Because the river causeways have changed their direction, the windmill is in disuse now and the land stretches out around it in its dull parched covering, lazing dejectedly in the hazy sun.  The spindly leaves are dry and parched and they move continually, sometimes dropping small rotting debris, which becomes leaf litter.  Humus gathers beneath the clump, acting as a prophecy to portend plentiful abundant foliage that will spring from the mound when the rains come again to fertilize and nourish the land. The rotating blades catch the light as they spin slowly around, chunking and clanking as they flap forlornly in the gusty wind.   A shimmer glazes over the scene as heat drifts up from the browning earth skywards.  The contrast of flashing metal and the dry rotting bush signify the way things change over time.

I’ll come back and explain all this later, It is from a course I am doing on Coursera.
