September on Iona

There’s metaphor
somewhere in grey cloud
hung low over Mull on
the other side

not entirely
unattractive –
illuminated even but
nonetheless grey

whilst dappled sunlight
in and on the rippled Sound
issues invitation to a
pilgrim soul

to this side –
entirely beautiful from there
shades of green and Michaelmas

yellow daisy at the door
bench I’ve dreamed upon before
I would stay awhile with you
here rather than there


perhaps I’ll pen illuminated haiku


yellow daisy. door
sunlit soul open to Sound
michaelmas blue


dwellings host watchers
swell carries voyagers home
bring me too with you

Simon Marsh
