The Northern Ireland Coast

Towering sentinel sea stacks watch over mirrored 
obsidian ocean highlighted by a candescent full moon,
a cornflower blue butterfly rests on the reed stem 
of lissom marram grass on a windswept sand dune.

A tide sculpted 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.

A 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 a mermaid’s cave.

Mischievous sunlight and clouds create fluid light and 
 shade as shadows chase along 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,
brushstrokes of a coral pink summer sunset colour-wash
tranquil beach and waves over a calm indigo coloured 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 an imposing ebony black granite tor.

 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.
