At night

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

Planting

above the machair
a skylark sings a piobaireachd
we plant potatoes

Scribbles

on wet sand, waves scribble
long fine lines, poems etched
along the shore for you to find

Text Pauline Prior-Pitt

Veils

no one notices
how waves spread across the shore
like bridal veils
