'Coastal Beauty'

As I sit here languishing in late summer bliss,
here on the south Island we are enjoying some of the
best weather of the year, I feel somewhat of a
grasshopper whiling away the days as 
the cool wet months approach. 
The beauty of the west coast  is never ending
for me. The sensuous grace of the Arbutus trees,
there fox red bark splitting in the August heat.
The newly exposed, smooth, pale green of the new bark 
compels my caress. 
Often situated in the most gravity defying locations their
ancient beauty is mesmerizing.
