JUNE 2015: MAWGAN PORTH BEACH @ SUNSET...

Sunset Drug

Dusk teetered dank
Over bare forearms
But not enough to chill, or shrug.

As I strode tentatively seaward,
A weakening, dropping sun lugged,
Then heaved billowing clouds of charcoal threat
And slipped below to loom incongruously
And over a shamefully timid Atlantic tide,
A willowy amber marker tugged…

Alone, I strode pensively landward,
Into dusk’s hovering charms,
As gulls flew the hurried exodus
To a fiery sun’s hallucinatory drug…

Strange walking alone on Mawgan Porth’s beach, just as the sun went down and dusk awaited. Gulls were attracted to settle on the shoreline…
