Cornwall in Summer

This is the post excerpt.


St Ives Harbour View

The harbour view, precisely framed, is sparkling blue
With crystal colours of the ocean; a window onto
Infinite space. We sit surrounded by the azure bay,
A ring of shimmering brilliance, where land embraces sky
And seas sweep in from far Atlantic shores. Meanwhile
All kinds of people roam across the beach
Perhaps in search of love or pearls, and molluscs frolic
In the wake of boats grown lazy in the luscious light.
A seal nestles by the quay, then vanishes, too frisky
To be bound by harbour walls or human admiration.
Our words drift out to sea, swept out beyond rescue,
Into the fathomless distance; now everything is blue.
