Swan Light

Shimmering sunlight
Pouring through satin swans wings
Falls to earths dark body.

Berwick Law, East Lothian, Scotland.

About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands

    I wouldn’t have thought of a swan wing, but now that you tell us…it really is!

    Perfect description. One checks each line against the picture and does a Little Noddy Man imitation.

    Beautiful colors, and very descriptive words. I like this.

  12. Beautiful haiku and restful image. I can go to sleep now x

  13. At this time of year, we notice the light even more. Colors fade away, leaving monotones and light play as small comforts until spring returns. I love that silvery light and I can see the “wings.”
    BTW, I hope you get to see the Northern Lights where you are tonight….

    • We didn’t see the lights….only on the TV programme sky watch which showed us the aurora in Norway….stunning!
      Silvery light is the perfect description….it’s so watery and pale at this time of year.

  14. Respirations 18, Pulse 60, BP 120/70 … having read your words and absorbed the image these figures are depressed by about 10% from the normal levels. Your work seems equally as effective as the stuff the doctor gives me to control my blood pressure. Perhaps you should write a book and market its sales through prescriptions? D

Let me know your thoughts on my post...I love feedback :-)
