Marram Grass

Marram Grass

The grass, they say,
builds the dunes
from wind and sand.
Then holds them in place,
daring the gale
to blow them away
and let the sea
erode the shore.

Let us be
like the Marram grass.
Let us build again
and then hold on
for as long
as this wind blows.
Let us claim our shores,
walk the sands once more.

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.
