Finding a relatively sheltered spot we took refuge
Listening to the ‘musical’ sounds of the raging sea.
With its crashing waves in competition with the
Symphony of sound conducting the thunderstorm.
The elements can be both entertaining and extremely
Frightening once the conductor takes baton in hand
Though this ‘concert’ lasted for an hour or more we were
Relieved once it abated.
The calm which followed, a complete contrast.
With crisp air of the autumnal evening chilling us
As we wended our way homewards.
