July 2021

Morning slumber disturbed – again……

A magpie racket:
emptying the bird feeder.
Their “clack & collect”!



Glorious, orange moon…

Jealous black pines watch
a rising moon transforming
from gold to silver.



Summer growth…

Sliabh Cairn’s copper sheen
oxidises in summer
to a blushing green.



Olearia in magnificent bloom…

Laden white hedges
hug the Windy Gap like clouds.
Sweet scents billowing.



No night to speak of…

Summer darkness lies
low under leaf-heavy trees.
The sky hoards the light.
