Fa – the name of the Green Dragon

A Place for the Odd Musings of an Expat Bristolian


The Island Light

I painted this as part of my occupational therapy following an accident in my garden.lighthouse



The Island light stands firm and strong

In all weather rough and raw

And even when a gale would blow

The light you always saw


Shining brightly lighting your way home

Beneath a fog-filled view

Spreading beams of welcome

Its prismatic light for you.


For ocean going cargo ships

And small sailing craft as well

The turning light a beacon

That would of safety tell


And so toward the light

Beneath a harvest moon

In calm water and fine weather

We’d be at home quite soon.
