Searching Loch Lomond

Scattered shale
imported granite chippings
line banks bonnie with leaf
and lapping water.
ancient trees
roots exposed -
rock protected -
poised like stick insects.

We follow the shadows
in and out
of woods,
mossy stones,
lichened branches.
feet ancient and modern
walk this path
singing the song
of ages

Returning
sunwise
we catch the gleams
of setting sun,
the gleams
of memory
not our own.
we listen for
the ancestral heart beat -
is it here?
