On SS Hebrides crossing the Minch in 1912: “the little girl is of about 13 – Morag – has won a bursary and is going to school in Glasgow – to live in lodgings with utter strangers. This is the first time she has been on a steamer – she has never seen a train – never seen a tree – never seen a town – and has never seen her fellow travellers before” Photo from A Hebridean Journey: the Travel Diary of Isabell Burton MacKenzie

At night

the fallen stones assemble
into former walls where fairies meet
to tell their ancient tales


above the machair
a skylark sings a piobaireachd
we plant potatoes


a world on its own
the ferry weaves her own pattern
on the grey blue screen
