Winter recedes

A blanket of cloud
is drawn across the sky
to just block out
the sun for today

The tide is out
the rocks protrude
the link is postponed
until the water returns

To the south
the sun still shines
if not actually
in the sky

The bees now buzz
over the bare machair
chased by the playful
and the newly appeared

Nights will be warmer
as winter recedes
the lambs will now soon come
lured by your voice
