we, the children of fishermen
Miles away from the word festival at Aberdeen University, I pushed the boat in Shetland blue.
North East Scotland’s anthology of new writing, foreworded by Shetland poetess Christine De Luca, was launched today in the granite city. Thank you to the editorial team for including Stormday.
Pushing Out The Boat
There at low tide, sand was littered with sugar kelp. So I went closer to the rocks and felt the power of our world – the mechanics of the cosmos, as water filled sandy channels, every cubic inch of rockpool…
And followed tracks across the sand, the many grains of wilderness.
One final thought on that new day,
(Monday) 17 May.
For the very first time in 26 years, I will look at it without fear and will celebrate in Lerwick Norway’s Constitution Day with my buddies from either side of the northworld 🙂
