Clematis, A Cafe and Pablo Neruda

24 May

The centre of this White Clematis is very lovely.

We have been in St Austell shopping for a Fridge Freezer as ours has stopped working! On our walk through the town we saw this delightful cafe, The China Cafe, and wanted to stop for a coffee but it looked full.

The light at this time of the year is so glorious! This simple poem from Pablo Neruda explains it beautifully.


Ode to Enchanted Light – Pablo Neruda

Under the trees light
has dropped from the top of the sky,
like a green
latticework of branches,
on every leaf,
drifting down like clean
white sand.

A cicada sends
its sawing song
high into the empty air.

The world is
a glass overflowing
with water.

    What an extraordinary mural. I keep going back to look at it! Love deep in the heart of clematis too.
