Poetry Map of Scotland poem no. 73: Glenashdale


Ladybird poppies
stem from colourfields
as geometrical shapes
land in the waterfall
the black curtain opens....
tourists picnic at the high bench
swinging feet back and forth
across pine needles
beyond Giants' Graves
Mountain of Wind
rises above clouds
meeting the Arran sky
Glenashdale Falls ….
a holiday romance
on the rocks
