Mill Pond, Duncow

Mill Pond, Duncow

The mill pond is calm,
yet deep enough to hold
the sky and all its clouds.

Trees sink slowly deeper,
waving as they carry
the sun in their branches.

A ripple of birds
spread ever outwards,
until they slip the world.

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.
