a postcard published with support of the Scottish Arts Council, 2007

After the storm

in quiet corners


speckled heavens

girded in tub soil


break ground

clinging to sodden light


trusting a reach

into cooling air


like hummingbirds

necking for fuschsia


to sip cloud-burst drips

to sense high summer air


holding skyscrapes

grazing daybreaks.
