#423: Sky and Sea

Island dwellers notice the sky.
If only because we need to know what's coming,
weather-wise.
Calm seas reflecting cloudy skies:
Old pilings, perhaps from the whaling era,
gradually merge into the beach.

The Congregational Church tower lights up 
an otherwise stormy sky.

Even cobbles underfoot reflect the grey light,
edges softened by decades of drivers.
