We tiptoe through layers of grass, brown heather and stone. The mountain’s steady pulse becomes our anchor with the wind whirling around her boulders. We can rest here. We can sip from the rising spring.
between the melting snow fields
In early June clouds float across Lochan Deo, the water slightly receding after an un-seasonable warm week. Today, clouds only float in sky. The loch is dry, earth lies parched between stones, curved driftwood.
the pine and heather
for rain to fall
We tiptoe across shingle to sands down below, the pools and a haze of blue mountains. The wondering and what-ifs are over now. The river flows out to a glistening sea, gathering stones full of meaning.
We wish you all a very happy and blessed New Year and are delighted to have two poems from our blog – Grandma Alice and Frozen Footsteps – published in Chiaroscuro – Darkness and Light, the beautiful anthology created by Mary Grace Guevara, Björn Rudberg and the team at dVerse Poets.
The anthology features more than 100 poets from around the world and is available from Amazon in Europe and North America.
With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
