'Donaghmore Beach' by Carmel Doherty

Title: Donaghmore Beach; Medium: mixed; Price: €2,500.

Donaghmore Beach July 1984


It gets cold by the sea
In the dark
I feel small on the beach


I am of the land


The mind and the body is one
Is whole
Sea meets the land


There are stars
In the head
Waves breaking


And cloud inbetween
