Golden Strand Beach, Achill, Co. Mayo

Golden Strand Beach

1st November 2017

Green waving with the wind,

grey resists while gold and white take to the air,

to dance and crash and crackle against stone and shell.

Rounded boulders, smoothed by ocean’s caress, bear fissures of years,

Silent witness to transient time, seaweeds torn from their beds, await their burial in sand.
