I need a night in Wales.
That wide, black sky and the frosty cold,
crisp clean air and absolute silence.
Except for the cuckoo.
Always that cuckoo whenever I go home.
But I'd like to hear her tonight and to breath that cold air.
Eyes up to the stars from a pitch black garden.

Word(s) of the day: “cloud inversion” - magical weather phenomenon whereby cloud fills low ground, such that - in hill country - peaks appear as islands in a sea of mist (caused by a warm upper air-layer trapping cold air beneath it).

Word of the day: "heartwood" - the dense, durable interior of a tree's trunk, often more richly coloured than the surrounding "sapwood". Metaphorically, the deep-set aspects of a person, their inner core.
