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

a difficult state of mind after parting – well, yet another sigh from me – strong emotional poems by ukaneers these days.


a reminder of the understated genius of the man.
