Solway Sands

Solway Sands

The sea has gone,
leaving only ribbed sand
as a legacy.

The departed tide
has scoured this place.
The very air is clean.

The stage is set,
a wind from the wings
hints of change to come.

There is salt in the air,
beyond the horizon,
a new sea gathers.

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. Another great collection of lines to capture the soul of an empty Solway, perfectly illustrated too.
