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
