Out on Bofin…

Wind whispers poems.
A corncrake creks tirelessly.
Lake lillies shiver.

*************************************

Phew! The biggest thunder storms I can remember….

Deafening thunder.
Briefly, the Whole World is Noise.
Then, birdsong only.

*************************************

Incredible light to sea today, pure calm, opalescent, magical, mystical, mythical.

Light casts ancient spells.
Mile above the horizon,
the Fastnet hovers.

***********************************

Watching the birds from the Rathlin ferry….

Eider dawn patrol
parts ’round careering gannet.
Guillemot ducks low.

*************************************

Early morning sun on tiny, limestone fields, a cuckoo begins to call…

Árainn cuckoo calls,
announcing his late return.
True start of Summer.
