April 2016

And the terns are back, swooping and screaming over the water…

Announcing themselves,
returning terns bank and turn,
shrieking their delight.

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

Full moon, Bantry Bay, magical…

Glittering fragments
form a dazzling mosaic.
Full moon on full tide.

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

Everything Irish weather has is here this month…

Rain puddles steaming.
Changeable April changes.
The mountains, snow-capped.

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

Torrential rain ends as suddenly as it begins, pure April weather…

Into the vacuum
the rain shower left behind
floods a blackbird’s song.

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

 Sunsets these evenings are dramatic…

Tree-tops like crows’ claws.
Ravens cross a bullfinch sky;
Slowly turns starling.
