Between mountain and sea

     Between mountain and sea

     Honey and salt - land smell and sea smell,
     as in the long ago, as in forever.

     The days pick me up and carry me off,
     half-child, half-prisoner,

    on their journey that I'll share
     for a while.

     They wound me and they bless me
    with strange gifts:

    the salt of absence,
    the honey of memory.

Glendhu ; Walk in

Who possesses this landscape? -
The man who bought it or
I who am possessed by it?





False questions, for
this landscape is masterless
and intractable in any terms
that are human.

 from 'A Man in Assynt'
