A Poem from C.E. Ayr

Black and White

Mediterranean sunshine
unique beauty
a small separate world
of light 
and shadow
a butterfly
aimlessly waltzing
on a striped awning
a pigeon
nodding through
early morning
black-headed gull
seen from the bay
across a cliff face
a boat
in shining silver sea
a lizard
flash of grey
under a dark rock
colorless hills
sparkling steel water
all shades
of black and white
a world
seen only
in chiaroscuro

A Scot who has discovered paradise in a small town he calls Medville on the Cote d'Azur, C.E. Ayr has spent a large part of his live in the west of Scotland and a large part elsewhere.  His first job was selling programs at his local football club and he has since tried 73 other career paths, the longest being in IT, with varying degrees of success.  He is somewhat nomadic fairly irresponsible and, according to his darling daughter, a bit random.


  1. What a lovely poem. I could so picture myself sitting on a chaise longue, observing the same sights...

    1. As Ms Day famously said 'Move over, darling'

  2. Dear CE,

    Such a lovely picture painted here. I'm reserving my chaise lounge next to Dale. Of course I'll have to dive in from time to time. Again beautifully done, I can hear the waves and the gulls and smell the salty air.



    1. Two lovely ladies and a peripatetic poet.
      Sounds even more like heaven.
      I might need to write another verse.
