I've just been helping Poppy with that malaria h/w via skype!! Whatever next! She wants to learn her french with me tomorrow night!
I've had a lovely day. Time by the sea, browsing the shoppes, eating cornish pasties, icecreams (2), fish and chips....Mmmmm.
A poem for you.....
Standing on the edge of land and sea,
The divide between two great masses,
Mergence of terra firma, oceana,
Inspiration for awe and wonder,
Filling the senses, all at once,
With nature's incredible diversity.
Warm and gentle offshore breeze,
Perpetually in motion, never still,
Softly changing the sand-scape,
Eroding abandoned sandcastles, footprints,
Smoothing harsh edges, remodelling effortlessly,
Sculpting with a skilled hand.
Sun casting long perfect shadows
Across footprints discarded in the sand,
Close to setting behind me,
Sharing it's last warm evening rays,
Through an unblemished clear blue sky
Glinting off the ripples at the water's edge.
Calm waves lapping the emptying beach,
New patterns with every rise and fall,
Softly rolling, delicately edged with white foam lace,
Stirring up the sand beneath,
Remoulding the beach for another new day,
Leaving it virginal once again.
Blue green ocean,
Sparkling, rippling, never still,
Forming soft stippled peaks in the harbour,
Motorboats, fun, speed, laughter,
Fishing boats, gentle, peaceful, tranquil,
Harbour filled with livelihood, recreation, side by side.
I have found peace.
