on Arran with Aoife

on Arran with Aoife


we sat side by side

on a rocky brae

sharing a sea-shell

listening to waves


we parted

in sorrow

the blame was mine

I kept the shell


I need not put it to my ear

in guilty sighing

returned on the breeze

I catch the sea

Thanks, all, I like shorter pieces too but they are all exactly as long as they need to be. :)
Naturally, pieces for performance need to be longer to build a mood in the audience.
I'm presently flirting with imagism - my next posting follows that type of work - the distillation of a sentiment, an occasion, a mood, in few words is the aim.

I love the lyrical declaration, and nice to see this reduced formula Rick just for a change.
