Winter Castle Loch, Lochmaben

Winter, Castle Loch, Lochmaben

There is a beauty
In the cold,
In the white loch,
In the sparkle of winter.

This is a time
When all stops, 
All holds its breath,
Water is held still.

Here is a moment
To pause for a while,
And then to listen
To nothing…
                      .. nothing at all.

By photos,poetry and haiku by Derek Ross

I am a photographer/ poet from Dumfries in South West Scotland. I concentrate on minimalist images and prefer using an iPhone these days. As far as my writing is concerned, I usually write short poems (some in Scots dialect), hence my interest in haiku and related forms.
