The Coast Of Ireland A Sensory Piece

Updated on August 20, 2010

The Coast Of Ireland

 All it takes is a glance

A clear view and my eyes are treated to a sight full of harsh wonder, natural beauty and intreaguing secrets

I am encaptured

The wild untaimed grass and wild flowers that run rampent over the cliffs

The rough and crude rocks formed by the ever active green blue throbbing monster that untireingly strikes the rocky cliffs with a vengence

The air so fresh it fills my lungs tenfold

The harsh yet some what intoxicating smell of the salt drenched air

The inviting and rather fanticiful scent of the grass

The reverberating and evervecent chrashing of the merciless sea pulsing through me

I bring my hand to touch the earth

The ground damp the grass wreathing through my fingers

I feel the ground begin to pulse as I see a herd of wild ponies making haste to the sea side

Their leader unmistakeable

His nobley shaped head raised high and proud

His shoulders broad and full of power

His coat a blinding white soaked with sweat

His call resounding and sharp

Commanding the obediance of his herd

The sound of their thunderous hooves like to that of a thousand drumbeats

The smell of the earth rich and pleaseing comes to my nose as their powerful legs churn up the soft earth

I open my mouth with awe at the sight

I taste the salt in the air

The rich earth

The sweat of the wild herd

The stallion raises his head watching

HIs body tense

His muscles quivering and his mind alert

I take this all in, a magical place, yet in reality

Full of glorious sights and sounds, yet every day it is taken for granted

I have seen today a poem outside the world of writting and words

A place where God has show His power, His beauty, and His attention to every detail

No matter how small.
