National Poetry Day, Outer Hebrides

Waiting for the Tide of Inspiration Ardivachar Beach Winter

syllables dancing in the spray
words rolling in grains of sand
antonyms hiding in fronds of kelp
synonyms twisted in shining alginates

will the wind release the rhymes
sonnets to soar above the waves
or leave them tangled in flotsam
poetic debris, drowned doggerel
