Colourful highly personalised beach huts wait for a passing
landscape artist in a long curving decorative row,
the transient subtle luminescence of a deserted winter
beach transfigured after a recent dusting of snow.
Reminiscent of Monet, wild scarlet red poppies embroider
a picturesque field of ripening golden wheat,
the distinct silver grey line on the distant horizon clearly
delineates where open coastal skies and sea meet.
Sea Lavender’s delicate amethyst purple flowers embellish
a salt marsh landscape untamed, flat and wide,
high on a sandy pebbled beach discarded tubular iridescent
silver razor shells left by the previous high tide.
Nature’s artistry evident by the transposing peaks, waves
and water channels of wind sculpted sand dunes,
the silver tinted shadowed silhouettes of resting geese on
marshland are highlighted by a candescent full moon.
A freshening wind creates the metallic melody of dinghies’
metal rigging clinking against aluminium masts,
resting on sandy beach weathered crab boats painted in bold
primary colours, a reminder of the coast’s fishing past.
Perennial wind and waves carve shingle spits and tidal
silted islands surrounded by sea of cerulean blue,
the marsh’s colour palette subtly altering as light and
shade transpose as itinerant clouds pass through.
When walking along windswept beach or driving along the
winding coastal road in bright sunshine or rain,
with ever-changing light, weather, wide skies and tides in
constant flux, you never tire of this beautiful coastal terrain.
Happy Birthday Matt love from Zara
