Northern Ireland

Looking down into Glenariff with distant sea views, hearing only
the whisper of the wind and watching birds soar,
transient tapering sunlight and cloud create fluid shadows on
patchwork fields along the sloping glen floor.

Towering sentinel sea stacks diligently watch over mirrored 
obsidian ocean highlighted by a lustrous silver full moon,
a cornflower blue butterfly rests on the reed stem of wild
  marram grass on Portrush’s windswept sand dune.

The resolute weathered silhouette of Dunluce Castle sits on 
a windswept headland that plunges steeply into the sea,
the footbridge reaching over dark rocks is lit by a radiant 
golden summer sunset as far as the eye can see.

 A tide sculpted beach cove shaped like an extended oriental 
 fan lined with a curve of pristine golden crystalline sand,
the elaborate design of an interlocked black hexagonal
basalt causeway created as though by a giant’s hand.

 Mussleden’s clifftop library shaped like a circular temple 
watches the hypnotic rhythmical ebb and flow of the waves,
the prismatic beauty of an ephemeral artist’s palette 
 rainbow viewed through the arch of Mermaid’s cave.

Mischievous sunlight and clouds create fluid light and shade
  as shadows chase along Glen of Antrim’s rugged moorland,
looking northward, the diaphanous curtain of the Aurora  
Borealis dances in pink and green shimmering bands.

A restless sea momentarily touched with liquid silver by 
tapered sunlight shining through layered clouds of grey,
vivid brushstrokes of a coral pink summer sunset colour-
-wash tranquil beach and waves over White Park Bay.

The mesmeric eloquent rhythmical drumbeat of traditional 
Irish folk music briefly entertains from an open door,
the serene sweeping silence of the snow dusted dark
rock peaks of Mourne Mountain’s ebony black granite tor.

Ageless translucent underground rivers carve limestone caves,
creating cream coloured calcite cascades,
the delicate intricate patterns of woven antique Sheelin lace, a 
traditional craft by skilled hands made.

Shadowed conifer forested peaks are tinted polished copper
and burnished amber by the radiance of setting sun’s rays,
 this beautiful rugged coastline subtly transposes and evolves 
with the changing light and tides throughout the day.
