I’m hyping myself up for a visit to Mum in the care home today, so I tried escaping to one of my favourite places – the sea.


Under mackerel sky

Gulls wheel on buffeting wind

Waves smash rocks and reefs

With a dull rumbling thunder

Making the sulphurous air quiver


Far as eye can see

Wrinkled lines in grey-brown sea

Moving ponderously

Then surging in rhythmic pulses

Wild white galloping horses
