All night the wind has howled, the reeds toss and turn and sway.
The sea boom-boom-booming into our sleep.

Rain blows in from the mountains.

The View From My Front Door, standing on a chair.  
As you can see I simply had to.
Someday I'll have my view from here!

Crisp with the first real chill in the air.

The tussle between sun and rain persists,
radiant dawns, luminous dusks, 
swathes of blushing, blooming clouds lingering throughout the day.

Sunshine and showers,
the slow bleaching away of summer's green, 
back into the earth.

Before the sun hits the mountains.
A promising sort of sunrise.
