Between the Waves

Between the Waves

We are drawn
                       to the sea,
Where the  tide
                       never fails,
When the water
                       is clear
And the cold
                       winds are tamed.

Let there be
                      no more storms,
Nor a shift 
                      in the sands.
Let us pause
                     for a while,
Let us swim
                     in the calm

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.


  1. Wonderful again Derek, epitomises our current situation beautifully. I’m full of admiration for your skills as a wordsmith, you paint emotional pictures.
    In truth I’m more than a little bit jealous.
