November 2020

So calm these days, the colours…

Silvery turquoise,
the sea is brighter than the 
choppy, pewter sky.



In Glengarriff woods…

Lichen-bearded birch
wade, knee-deep, into the flood,
gold leafing downstream.



Winter birds…

Three magpies cackle
Jays squabble over chestnuts
Just the robin sings.



Still some bright gold appearing…

Among the brown leaves,
as Autumn fades to Winter,
chanterelle beacons.
