It's the Spring holiday and nature is in abundance while we are carefully maintaining our social distance.

Today at Portobello, the beauty of the neap tide, the damp chill of the haar, and the predictable presence of the cormorant cheered me as I walked on the  ridged sands of the sea bed.

Looking forward to more sociable times again when the tide has turned on this unwelcome virus.



The moon-drawn water

Gifts us distance,



To wander


While aloft -

In its accustomed place -


The cormorant

Holds sway.
