~Isle of Skye~


Mesolithic hunter-gatherers

Occupants rock-sheltered

Famine & clearances the latter

Depleted populace no census

Settlements now fossilized treasures;

Sheltered coves, rows of pink

Craggy ranged mountains

Green fertile hills of Sleat

Nature trails – ash, birch & hazel

Carpets of fern, fresh-watered streams;

Whitewashed cottages beneath Skye Bridge

Unspoiled coastline – scenic boat trip

Views of the lochs situated on a shoreline’s edge

White foaming waves breaking over rocks

Feast of images – memorable experience;

All roads lead to roam

Weather sunshine or fowl whether

A distinct, individual atmosphere

Ancient land, resonating heritage

Last Mallaig of your journey, a golden glimmer.

"All roads lead to roam" Love that. Loved the whole poem. A bit of saddness to it, although it is not a sad piece, wonder why that is? Very good.
