To write one hundred hopeful words every day for one hundred days


Tom’s Cairn, near Finzean, the third of July

With a best friend, not in our most sensible shoes

I get a photo of a dragonfly for Little Boy

Cuckoo spit, ticks and adders in the heather

On one side the Dee Valley, familiar places shrunken below

On the other the Feugh and the Forest of Birse, the hulking Cairn O Mount

I don’t even try and use a camera- it’s too much for that

Forty minutes in my new old car and we’re here

Where beauty and hope run like the Dee in spate

And the birds fly up from the grass.


Tom's Cairn
