Sometimes the weather in the west of ireland does not entice you out initially. Those dark rain leaden skies are not a bicycle users best friend. But if you know there is a warm fire and a cup of tea at the end of your journey you might risk it and just look at that light! It would be a great pity to miss the beautiful light that such days bring.
(Sometimes my way of jotting down a piece of writing is to look at my photo and take it from there).
INVITATION TO A WRITER FRIEND
Will you come this way
your reluctant dog in tow
your black bike shuddering on the stoney road
I know the sky is uninviting
(would you rather stay at home)
but I have the fire lit and the tea poured.
Thank you for the invite
just getting on my bike
and I see the rain is easing
(would be a shame to miss the light)
keep the fire burning
and the tea hot
see you in a while.
