What is beauty? …

Carne .. approaching storm

What is beauty?
Beneath a threatening sky
jade green is the sea;
the tide is racing in …
A silver-sheened redoubt of rock,
white furrows
of waves encroaching;
the limpid lakes;
the sea-urchin hollows.
The majesty of winter
in the subtlety
of changing light
upon bejewelled sea ..
yes, before the storm breaks;
this is beauty … .

Reticent .. but I hope my poetry speaks for me .. Favourite quotation .. ' Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.' Ludwig Wittgenstein
