Stones and poems

Views from Harbour Cone

We’ve been grabbing every opportunity to go walking on the Otago Peninsula while the cooler weather and winds are holding off. A couple of weekends ago we drove up Highcliff Road, parked the car and walked up to Harbour Cone. The views on the way up, once there, and on our return journey were fantastic. 360 degrees of delight. On the way back  I looked closely at the stone walls and marvelled how each stone was just the exact fit. It made me think of writing a new poem. Words are selected, discarded, and picked over until every one is an exact ‘fit’. Hopefully then, the poem like the stone walls will have a greater chance of enduring for years.
