Weather Eye



Shiraz? No,
Merlot, please.

Meanwhile,
the conversation
sails around

as the valley
drinks in the mist
and a rose pink armchair
takes its ease on the patio.

The kind of cottage
that would suit
an old sea captain

kelp nailed
above the door
to keep an eye
on the weather.

We need a lamp
although the sun’s still high
in the evening sky
playing host to the ghost
of a moon.

A lamp,
and more wine
for the old captain,

the kelp tells
us, as if we didn’t already know
that he’ll be here soon.
