A last Shetland sunrise

teeep in a blur

A last Shetland sunrise
Its flaring red, pink, lilac and blue skyscape performs to remind
the boys and I of perfect
untainted natural beauty.


I smile
I walk out to greet the glow
Sky, wind, cold envelope me.
Sheltering from the Baltic wind in a steadfast porch that faces east,
I watch
To etch the view forever.
A basin of ice cold sea
wraps the surface of a world below a rippled dancing sky.
Alfie by my feet
on the age old stones.
The red sky does not fade,
it glows, it sings, it morphs

It shouts to me
“Goodbye, do not forget me,
For I am in your soul”

  1. I’ve loved your posts and beautiful photographs of a place I want so much to visit and experience. I also thank you for inviting me virtually to your home for a colour blending workshop recently. I wish you well in your next home, thank you again ❤
