Where am I?

Where am I?

Sat on the beach

What can I see?

a vast expanse of sea that is Lyme Bay

a beach called Chesil stretches out before me.

a sun shimmering golden road cuts a swathe  across the sea.

waves rise and then fall  before  breaking  up on the shore

wispy clouds decorate the sky

a golden orb is a jewel of gold

What can I hear?

waves breaking upon the shore,

the sound of shingle under foot,

the cry of seagulls.

What can I feel?

the gentle warmth of the late evening sunshine upon my face.

How do I feel?

at rest 

at ease

at peace.

I sit in awe and wonderment at the magnificence I see before me,






the light grows dim,

the golden road loses its shimmer and is gone

the sun disappears over the horizon,

the day is over and the night begins.
