View across the Outer Harbour of Stornoway

Tuesday, 13 November 2012


Low tide
The bar stretches
across the entrance to the basin
a rapid outflow the sole break

An old engine
now just a lump of rust
with a few floats

Dirty mud with stones
empty shells
gulls squawking

A squirt of water
other inhabited shells
try not to stand out

Six hours later
Only water
All else aforementioned?
Under 17 feet of water
