Auld Brig, Dumfries.

 Auld Brig, Dumfries.
 Was it just Monday
 that the sun shone?
 So much rain, since then,
 so much has flowed
 beneath the Auld Brig.
 But it’s still there,
 still strong enough
 to endure the torrent.
 Still carrying us
 from one side…
                            …to the other.

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. You’re welcome, Derek. I’m still getting used to seeing “brig” mean “bridge.” In my world, “brig” is a jail on a Navy ship. I’m well and keeping warm. Thank you for asking!
