Tanka: A Dream Rests


snow melts
on Cnoc Fhaoighris
a dream rests
between clouds and water
her path soothed by spirits

    1. Thank you for your kind words Samantha ☺ This is Fyrish Monument which was built during the clearances under order of Sir Hector Munro to provide work for the people who were being cleared of the land. It is a steep hill to climb and it would have been hard work to get the stones up there. I have said quite a few prayers for those souls. 💖 xxx
