Loch an Eilein

head shots of a black whippet and blue and white whippet looking ahead

ah this joy
when early sun rays
warm the loch
glittering in the reeds
a still point for tomorrows

Deep in the day’s turnings the light changes to gold. A pair of wild-campers set up an indigo tent, gathering stones for a fire. When we return to the loch all the new seems familiar.
