Poetry Map of Scotland poem no. 8: Turnberry

evening shadows

we leave the links land

to the hare

We've had a great response to our project to Map Scotland in poetry. So far, in just two weeks about 130 people from all across Scotland and as far away as Canada have sent in poems, and more than 100 of the poems sent in are now pinned on the map. The poems received have been wonderfully diverse, not just in terms of geography, but also in structure and tone. So do keep them coming in. We''ll pin them on the map as fast as we can and post one of them in full on this blog every day or so.
