Colours

When our worlds feel restricted colour is a tonic, from the stunning lights of sunsets and sun rising over the Irish sea to the houses reflected in Bristol harbour and experiments with paint, pencil and pastels. To share colour is to share life!

 A Menu of Colour

 I want to be a sommelier
 
 of colour,
 
 choosing hue to soothe
 
 or enliven your mood,
 
 enhance how you feel
 
 enrich your experience,

 no shadow cast
 
 just vivid vermillion,
 
 deepest cerulean,
 
 and of course let me encourage
 
 you to take a lingering look 

 at my selection of yellow, green and blue.

 Calling Colours 
 for Leon
 my grandson and I name all the sea-colours 
 of Killiney Bay, where we are walking:

 copper-green, sea-green, silver, grey
 pink, cobalt blue, navy, azure

 changing shades as clouds move over
 or later when the sun sinks lower.

 Strawberry is the name of June full moon
 season of red fruits, red roses, red clover 

 crimson sweet williams, scarlet geraniums
 common poppies, dancing fuschia flowers.

 Last night, a young, tawny fox, bright in 
 moonlight, crossed my path, paused 
 
 on the grass, looked all around
 shook his brushtail, scampered on.

Dawn Rising
 sunrise lights sea lanes
 on calm full-tide waves
 
 a cormorant rides air, dives
 seagulls soar, glide
 
 seal family swims
 along the sea wall
 
 where I sing, "I dream
 I saw Joe Hill”
