One evening a little time back , while staying in country Wexford, I visited the lighthouse at Hookhead.

I always wanted to visit this great lighthouse, just before dusk and at the point that the lights are turned on for the night. It was a great feeling to stand below the tower and experience the darkness arriving over the coastline of Wexford.

The following images show this transition from evening light to darkness over the open Celtic sea.

These images are taken on an evening walk into the city of Rome along the Via Dei Fori Imperiali.

The lights had just been turned on and the day light was just finally fading, I love the mixed light so just had to get these images.

The Waterwheel

Stay together, friends.
Don’t scatter and sleep.

Our friendship is made
of being awake.

The waterwheel accepts water
and turns and gives it away,
weeping.

That way it stays in the garden,
whereas another roundness rolls
through a dry riverbed looking
for what it thinks it wants.

Stay here, quivering with each moment
like a drop of mercury.
