The Nith at Glencaple

The Nith at Glencaple.
 This is where
 The Nith opens up,
 where it ebbs,
 where it flows.
 This is where
 The Nith ends
 or begins,
 as tides decide.
 This is where
 the river renews,
 becomes again,
 a glistening stream.

 (Nith - from the old Cumbric “Nedd’ meaning “glistening”.)

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.

  1. Excellent yet again Derek, the pictures illustrate the theme very strongly. I also enjoyed your Romanian poems, especially Daniella colours in.
