Haibun: Lochs that Glitter

Knockan Crag Nature Reserve

Loch Eadar dha Bheinn winks at us from his mountain. Clar Loch Mor, Loch Dhonnachaidh and Clar Loch Beag make us wonder, whether we’ve met each other once before. I wish we could stay, get to know them better. Their personalities, their taste in fish.

crystal waters
the kindness in their names
a gaelic song

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
