Water colour

Painting the picture,
down from the top,
dove grey clouds,
bearing down softly,
on shadowy mountain tops,
black and grey give way,
to murky green and grey,
streaked with earth brown,
lower still a golden yellow,
merges with a grassy green,
patchwork quilt with redden orange,
yew tree green of standing pines,
above steel blue water,
rippled by rain,
rising up on my right,
a hillside of dead red bracken,
lit only by canary yellow,
of the sharp gorse flowers.

(Buttermere)
