Poetry Map of Scotland, poem no. 136: Tobermory

Tobermory Tide

Soft washing current,
rough sand and dim
dark rocks,
a foam of transparent lace at
the sea-edge.
Crusty fishing boats
carry in the tide,
the tender rain,

small round waves
roll themselves to shore
turning as a woman might
when leaning to kiss a familiar
and beloved face.
