Daddyhole Cove, Torquay, Devon.

Blue Heaven on a rocky shore.

 

Poem.

 

A balmy, early autumn day.

Morning sea-mist lingering.

A stones-throw east of Torquay Harbour,

Daddyhole Cove lounges in the still, warm rays

penetrating the thin cloud.

On a headland resembling a recumbent

Cretaceous Triceratops lies a tide-stranded rock-pool,

teeming with life.

Rocks and small islands, basking in the sun

become the vegetative remnants of a gorged,

over-indulgent meal.

Peace and tranquillity abound in this

sheltered corner of the Devon coastline.

A perfect antidote to the trials and tribulations of modern life.

Free, and always there.

Just the thought, acts like a symbolic

“stroke of the cat’s fur,” to our nervous system.
