where black stone finds

grey water, silver foam wraps

around rock    

your voice


beckons me back

through white shadowed rain

Silk waves in glass are merely

your ghost  


swimming in mirrors

Hidden in mist

a seabird sings

your echo


as wind flickers

feathery buds

bursting in thunder-blast sun


you’re haunting the heather
