grey whiteness of clouds above shadowed

ridge, song sparrow calling from branch

in foreground, sound of wave in channel

characteristics of physical,
defined phases follow

flatness, that both present,

each difference which

sunlit white cloud to the left of point,

shadowed canyon of ridge across from it


  1. Nature can give us a wide range of colours, sounds and smells to trigger out the verses within us. Of course only the poet succeeds in letting them out and praising the beauty of the scene, even if it is a cloudy day.

  2. Thanks for this Lucy, a real 'comment' (!) -- one on the few that's appeared here, nice to know that someone 'out there' is noticing. . . .
