Watching the Ripples Radiate.

Chapter 68
Manukau Idyll





Still waters on the Manukau
Serenely still and grey,
The waterline on yonder shore
Brings contrast into play,
The tree clad hills are rendered black
By hanging fog and cloud,
Transitions into nothingness
As layered mists enshroud.
The air is cool and silent here
There's stillness everywhere
The oyster beds are mounded high
As low tides leave them bare.
The calm of early afternoon,
The peacefulness inlaid
Is captured on this canvass
Like a mortar knife in clay.
We sit and spectate silently
Two cyclists on a seat,
The grandeur laid before us
A magnificence complete.
And I have to say for both of us,
In a still and soul full way,
That this lovely, peaceful estuary
Has completely made the day.
