FASACH,GLENDALE,ISLE OF SKYE,SCOTLAND. by ANDREW

Rain on Loch Dunvegan

And the slow squalls
tumble down from the tables
and skit and drag across the loch
as a green velvet skirt might
bob and drag along a grey slate path
the wind carried water slants past
the low islets
light as feet that scrape and crunch
rolling ripples raggedly regimented
run along in rapid lines
a monochrome tartan in grey and white
occasional urgency hastens the feet
whisks the skirt in hurried sheets
the wind and rain covet
and a darkening cloak
gathers about
