Sorry I haven’t been around much lately – preoccupied by a few little health problems in the family. Very wet here today, and Bert mooching around inside blaming us. So I’ve started on another painting – first and second washes…
Crossing Cook Strait was a dream, with the seas still calm ahead of the storm. On deck was a different story though as there was a really cold wind blowing through, and it wasn’t pleasant to stay out there for too long. Have to admit the ferry below wasn’t the one we crossed on – ours was a bit smaller. Loved the mistiness of the hills as we sailed up the sounds, so I left that photo in a rather over-exposed state because I liked it that way.
cry of gulls
and the hills disappearing
We had rubbish weather all day today, until this evening when the wind dropped and we snatched the opportunity to take the dog for a walk…
outside the wind
fights around the doors
looks for a way in
screams with frustration
at the windows
weigh down the sky
and thunder across the hills
in front of the fire
the dog stretches…
on wash day clouds gather
towering above the trees
outlined in fleeting sunlight
rain passes through in squalls
and the smell of wet earth rises
beneath the gleaming leaves
on the line the washing
sags and sways in a wind-blown dance
tangling wet clothes into tight huddles
time to shut the door
and read a book…
