Wheeling in slow arcs
the gannet's searchlight eyes scan
through the waves.
Prey sighted,
wings tuck back,
shape refined to dart -
vertical nose dive -

The Road from Scotch corner to Brough

Ancient, timeless fields
Glacier carved, dry stone wall shaped
- a canvas for light.


Hill tops are clad now
with turbines,wind cairns, to feed
our rapacious need.
