Time in St. Ives

Outside, the wind’s a howling beast,
more unpredictable than dragons
and water lifted from the sea
washes blue sky grey.

Off shore, a killer sea
waves out – then in – predictably
and moon time people crab along
from blinking caffs and shops.

Caressed by sun, clockwork town;
a timepiece ticking on.


  1. Sounds like an interesting place to be.

    You should really add Name/URL functionality to your comment-options, because now it is really hard to comment if you don't have any of these accounts.

  2. Yay! you take the comments of your readers serious!

    Thanks a lot!

  3. Loved the part about the timepiece :-)

  4. Nice! I had to look up "caffs". You waiting for Sandy?
