Walking Diary – West Cork

by niadavies

Durrus – overlooking the Sheep’s Head, August 8th 2009

Sea vapour making  a flight over the first hurdle of the headland. A sky that seems to sing. Cormorants wait. Grey on shine, wind that goes from whisper to bombastic. The grassy breeze and a swallow takes time over my head. It makes darts from heart-jolts.

The sheen moves west towards the western isles. Ghost smoke cloud – like a long-dead volcano yearning for its fire.
