Poetry walk pictures

My friend Yiannitsa Cegarra took some pictures during the poetry walk at Bennachie. In her photos she wanted to respond to some of the poems I was reading. Thanks Yiann!


One in the late summer birch wood
Knee-deep in heather flowers

the trees' small heart-shaped leaves
glistened at the sun after a summer shower.

Beneath it a spider cobweb
spun between blaeberry twigs
hung heavy with heaven raindrop pearls.

I remember this in the same way
as the shelled settlement

a few strides further up the path
so as to not to forget

what kindled the squatters' fire.
