Scenery 9

The lawn-calm bay still manages a
flourish of surf all the way round to
the houses congregating amidst trees
on the point. A strip of sand, narrow
but impeccably golden, makes a
similarly comprehensive sweep. This
doubly-inscribed curve finds an echo in
the bare, brown hill which rises above the
settlement. The pier ventures a straight
line, such a delicate affair one might
expect to spot a boat-sized spider
rather than a boat. The length of the pier
again, the sea is hosting a mystery,
a raft or buoy or log from Australia.
