Gin and me

When the rain clears
and the night sky
hums bright and clear
The lights of Howth
dip and rise
like a roller-coaster ride.

The runway lights
can be seen, blinking a
Christmas tree
welcoming a late
transatlantic flight

In the background
the mountains soften
to indigo grey shadows
against a sky
of darkest blue.

The patio heated
by a wood burner.
A single deck chair
allows the descent into
a solo languor of gin
and reminisce.

The city of Dublin
in distant darkness
