In recent days I’ve spent a lot of time by the sea in different parts of Scotland. The following haiku are an attempt to record those memories. Here’s to a peaceful New Year.
Silver salmon sea,
Wave-scaled light scallops inland,
Scatters on the rocks.
Low tide seaweed mark
Runs the edges of torn crabs,
Waves curl, roll and furl
Suck back through crowded pebbles
Dusk. The pewits call.
Ghosts from past and other times
Cut through the still air.
