At the best of times
perhaps in some of the worst,
poetry claims us

I did think of ‘calms us,’ but settled here.

On holiday

On the Isle of Skye
Some things are the same as home
Bilingual road signs

On the Isle of Skye
Clear, from a stand of green birch
Call of a cuckoo

Call of a cuckoo
Rings far across green hillsides
Everyone goes, ‘Ahh’
