Machrie Moor Standing Stones (Isle of Arran)

Machrie Moor Standing Stones. (Isle of Arran)

Following the shadow
of a standing stone,
we came to three others,
and so it went on
across Mochrie Moor.
Circle upon circle,
stone beside stone.

We looked to the hills,
we looked to the Firth,
tried to find answers
in each cleft and tide.
Finding none, we were glad,
and went on our way,
taking our shadows home.

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.
