The sea
Pale as me
Until radiant skies
In vibrant hues
Two as one
I walk this sod
Not knowing when
The road may turn
Or will the sea divide
What is known
I claim no hue to call my own
Which may be why
I set none aside
To love one above another
I only know I love the sea
Whatever is her color


Fay mainly works in oils, oil pastels and water colours, though she has produced some limited edition print runs. She is inspired by “the complexities of nature and landscape”, and the way the landscape changes with the fickle weather of the north of England. As you can see, there is a massive range of weather systems and landscapes to inspire her. If you want to read more about her, you can find her here:

All you have to do, dear poets of the bar, is to choose a picture, and let it inspire your words. If you can’t find inspiration here, have a look at Fay’s website and see some more of her amazing work. You are very welcome to use your chosen picture as an illustration, with credit to Fay, of course.

    This really struck me, Mary. It’s such an interesting way of describing one’s self…
