Poem Map of Scotland: poem no. 349

one evening on a peninsula

 

peat smoke forms by a silversmith

on a shoreline of scarlet

 

fading to a purpled horizon

blue hues envelop and harmonise

 

softly beyond the Sound of Sleat

looking over to the lighthouse

 

we will walk back along warm sand

holding shoes in our other hand

 

Neil Thomson
