Tangle

pixie black and white

The Gazebo leans.

Ivy creeps on the concrete base.

Crooked planks tilt.

Wild roses welcoming.

A tiny insect on the wooden desk.

Warm air, morning mist.

Rain-drop pearls on straggly grass.

Wild flowers scramble on Ruairi’s rest.

A white butterfly visits.

Bird chirrup In a tangle of thorns.

Blackberries still green.

Sea-gulls gather,

to screech at full-tide.

The Gazebo tilting on the southerly side.

About maskednative

I live in Ireland, in an extended cottage overlooking Waterford Estuary, privvy to constant changes of light on water, colour and movement, tides and people. I am anglo-Irish and although my initial intention was to live here for a year and a day, I am still here, a blow-in to these shores for the past fifteen years. There have been countless times when I wanted to run back to England with homesickness and relief, but for one reason or another, so far, it has not been possible. I surrender, the soul of Ireland has captured me, allowed a glimpse of the world behind the mask of everyday experiences, bringing forth a mixture of words and pictures from an ordinary everyday life, filled with ordinary everydayness that I offer as a celebration, to the creator of this truly wonderful planet.
