Rhossili Bay

Sitting and listening
to the sounds of the sea
to the bleating of sheep

Escaped from the traffic
Escaped from the smoke
smelling only the grass,
the sand and the sea

Sea mist providing intimacy
Between me and the world
Whilst blissfully below me
a child dances in the innocence of youth

No pressures upon me
but those of myself
Oblivious to the city
a few miles away

Relaxing with my thoughts
in peace and harmony
Lieing here, just thinking
how nice is the day

Rhossili Bay, on the Gower peninsula
