A drowning

Under the twin peaks
of Ceapabhal
overlooked by the rolling hills
of Na Hearadh

The isle of St Taran
closes the horizon
beyond which the Clisham
towers over all

The primordial grey
of the sullen rocks
by golden sands

The green sward
of machair
in the summer's
golden evening glow

A fringe of white surf
on the South Harris coastline
a wreath

[A holidaymaker was drowned, swimming off the coast at Borve, Harris, last night]
