In the morning a strange cloud hangs over the marsh,
casts the reeds in yellow light.

A damp day gives way to a cool Halloween eve.

5.45pm
Each day oscillates from the day before,
from gloom and rain to hot wind and glorious sun.
The tussle of summer and autumn.

2.50pm
Oh glory that is late summer haze
 and mountains bathe in milky pools.

7.30am
We awaken to find we are lost in a silvery mantle of rain.
All day.
Finally.

7.15pm
A balmy, sunny day,
and then as dusk gathers round us....
Swallows.


7.30pm
The beginnings of a chill is settling into the earth, into our bones.
Autumn has crept in the door and lies at our feet now.

9.10pm
All day the rain eludes us,
skirting the mountains,
the warm air damp with it's unfulfilled promise.

9pm
Darjeeling days, 
warm rain, 
and the clouds graze the mountain tops.

8 July. 9.30pm
Finally the rains begin to recede, and as the sun dies, 
from behind the mountain the dragon appears once again.

11pm
Like an indomitable mother, summer shakes out the clouds,
shoos away the chill, and proudly presents the perfect day.

The sun bursts, bleeds into a sky that speaks of dragons.

8.30pm
Contumelious cloudbursts aside,
the sun persisted.

Monday, 27 June 2011

9.30pm
The sun, it seems has returned,
yet so unexpected the day is almost done before we realise.

Thursday, 23 June 2011

11.30pm
The day insists on lingering,
unwilling to give in to night.

Before the rain, the heavens roil and fall.

An unexceptional day ends with a delight.

A brighter day with tentative sun and a bit of bluster.
