Gathering

Gathering

The sea is just out there,
neither calm nor angry.
It is taking its time,
making up its mind,
sensing the mood
of wind and moon.

There is a tide though,
beneath the surface,
waiting for the moment,
and, when all is gathered,
the sea, as always,
will make its move.


Author: 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.
