Low Tide, Mersehead

Low Tide, Mersehead.
 
 The sea has left
 Only its taste.
 Salt in the air,
 Caked-dry lips.
 
The tide has gone,                                                                                                                                                          beyond reach,
Beyond sight,
A soundless distance.
 
 All we have
 Is the wide promise
 Of a return,
 Another beginning.
 
 
 Derek Ross.
 

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.
