In ancient woodland, the slumbering autumnal colours of
bracken fronds of burnished copper and antique gold,
sparkling crystalline frost on trees is backlit with a pure
cornflower blue sky on a winter morn icy cold.
The austere majesty of Snowdon’s soaring snow covered
white crest momentarily takes the breath away,
clouds transfigure and create fluid light and shade on
distant sculpted hills as transient wind and sunlight play.
A pool of obsidian water mirrors imposing shadowed peaks
peaks and copper tinted heather covered sunlit hills,
rising above resting nebulous smoke white low lying mist, an
azure and pink dawn sky allows diffused sun rays to spill.
The silent leisurely bygone pace of a painted elongated narrow
boat on an aqueduct’s graceful arches of grey stone,
the delicate floating fragrance and tranquil colour of a
flowering indigo bluebell carpet in a peaceful woodland home.
The tumultuous liquid roar of a deluge of cascading white water
as it tumbles through the black boulders of Swallow Falls,
the undulating weathered patchwork intricacy of local quarried
stone hand crafted into resilient grey drystone walls.
The natural layered ancient artistry of split slate’s subtle
iridescence of metallic gold, purple and blue among grey,
resting smoke white nebulous low cloud softens shadowed
rock peaks on a cold crystal clear sunlit winter’s day.
The gentle curving slopes of verdant valleys dotted with
transient sheep watched by sentinel hills so tall,
the soaring mountainous vistas of Wales, hardly unchanged in
millenia, always have the beauty to enthrall.
Happy Birthday Matt love from Zara
