Poetry Map of Scotland, poem no. 148: Mellon Udrigle, Wester Ross

26 Jan

Ehm You

Tropical hues northern blues
Beneath yelps of delight
Under bird call and breeze
I can surely hear your tune

Worn rocks carry resonance
A mellow tone remains
Stolen moments of time
Sand grains on well-worn denim

    I love the musicality of this, and the way it moves from the visual sky, down throughthrough the sounds into the textures of the rock, sand and denim. Beautifully compact!
