A POEM A DAY - GALWAY BAY



Driving out from Galway, through Salthill, towards the tip of Galway Bay our view of the Aran Islands was shrouded in morning mist. The beach was busy with gangs of birds, fat sparrows in the bushes, jet black crows pecking in the seaweed, seagulls swooping overhead, ducks bobbing on the waves, waders spiking the sand and cormorants fishing from the rocks. Leaving the beach a mischief of magpies flocked around us, I counted 8 but there could have been more as they hopped and flew from the rocky path.
