A Scottish Eastertime

Lambs move like white blooms across scarred & pitted slopes wild hyacinths

spackle the shadows

as chips of sun lift stones

& yellow daffodils

a steady drizzle follows us

down the coast

from Ayr to Ballantrae

almost to Stranraer

before the Scottish sky

bursts its cold dreaming

of the madness of summer

when the sun doesn't sleep

& the stars crawl out

in the light

silhouettes tumble

into the sea and lie

in a forgotten winter

along Great Western Road

in the tendrils of a Glasgow close

swallowing the lamp wicks

the psalms of dusk

in the oily river shipyards

at Easter vermilion & scarlet

touch the ticking pendulum
