10 miles from here,white and shrouded mountain top
and home amidst the sea.
And it had rained,
morning, noon and all the day,
stuck in house and lets get out and drive you anywhere.
Our car -
baby seat and lack of calm,
crest of hill and miles still and roll the window now.
Home or out or round about and heavens pouring down.
Till sun came out,
fingers cast upon the earth and light spun all around.
Island view -
just the very ordinary thing you've always knew,
western coast and fishing boats and living where you do.
But do you see?
Sat ahead in drivers seat?
Silent now and chatting not of cows or trees or sheep?
How to take my breathe away across a steering wheel.
How to glow,
after rain and cloud laid low,
oversea and blue and green and distant grainy shore.
Busy mama, busy me,
unexpected seconds leave,
time and place and moments grace and only short and sweet.
Noisy children, noisy day,
bloody tractor in the way,
rolling hills and country things and view across the bay...
Arran Island, summer light and sudden calm today.
