Whisky Trails and Tattoos

From the Ben
To the Loch
Through the Glen
Open space

Feel the peace
Sense the calm
Breathe it in
Open air

Hear the birds
See them fly
Watch them soar
Open skies

Castles, streets and tenements
All mingled into one
Whisky trails and Tattoos
Against a setting sun

From the Highlands to the islands
From the Bens to the shore
Scotland has a scenery
To make your heart soar

    I like this – any that’s from someone who doesn’t like poetry. Well done!

  2. Love the poem! Also the new look to the blog – I have the side pic hanging above the fire place in my writing room – to remind me of my Edinburgh chidhood.

  3. I love how you captured Scotland’s EVERYTHING in one poem. Well done, it’s really good. 🙂

    Your writing knows no bounds, a truly awesome piece of writing from the hand of an angel and the soul of a gypsy the fear you create is just amazing.
