Haibun: A Voice from the Unseen

 

Findhorn Bay at low tide with canoes and rowing boats resting on shingle

 

This place speaks of other times, a voice from the unseen. Long before fishermen’s cottages turned into holiday homes. It is still the same river that flows to sea past scattered stones, the sound of shingle. The people change, the houses change. The bay sleeps where it always has, between sheets of silt and honey-coloured grass.

an oystercatcher piping
above the waves
