Winter Wood

Winter his settled
oan the wood,
the wood his settled
intae winter.
The hervesters
hauns are stilled,
an noo the trees
coorie in,
lettin the leaves
an ferns,
cover the scars
o anither year.

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. A beautiful way to greet a newbie to your site! As a tribute, may I offer a haiku, inspired by Winter Wood?

    autumn’s afterglow
    rich reds and greens foretoken
    yuletide warmth, indoors
