Make one poem
peedie limpet, sookit  
upon this sea-given grace
dulse, ebbed-up
the cosmos has gifted them
slow events, deep in time  
kappit, hefted, twinned
bàirneach beag & duileasg
brittled craig jewels, slakit
once, they swam life’s music to us
sang our lochs to hanseled silver
rock-fast they wright this shore.
