Twilight, Gran Canaria

Our gatherings this summer have brought with them stories of water and nature from all over the world - writers' holidays. As we move into winter again the cosy woodstove cabin will be cheered by the memories of warmer places and times. 

Twilight, Gran Canaria by Pat Sutherland

The sky painter signalled sundown
with a primer of peach,
a random wash of silver-grey;
drew a menagerie of fabled beasts,
shape shifters transforming
from phoenix to turtle in an instant
against a backdrop drifting
between blush and crimson.
One burning bar descended
into black ocean
and was quenched.
