Beyond the gate and the beautiful stone wall,
framed by the yellow flowers of wild rapeseed,
appeared the sea!
The heavy purple sky hung across the water like a winter blanket pegged out to dry.
As I walked along the coastline, the wind dispersed the clouds
creating patches of sheer blue
I held my breath as I glimpsed the sea between two mighty rocks...
and there it was: the sea, all dressed in turquoise and faraway purple, freshly painted
by the palette in the sky.
I followed the craggy path and breathed in the sea air
watching the clouds splay out behind the chapel on the hill.
Coming down again and gazing at the beauty of it all
and closing my eyes just a moment to listen to the waves as they hit the rocks
until I reached the beach for a little quiet contemplation.
