Wild Mountain Calling

  
Wild mountains called out to me, and pulled me in confusion to their feet. Pools of sea camomile covered my toes, filling the air with the heady scent of sleep, while soft purple clouds drifted in halos around their summits. The stories of Skye fall freshly woven from these slopes, and today the wild geese reminded me of the Norse princess sleeping eternally at the soft peak of Beinn na Cailleach. She listens still to the whispered prayers rising from the glens, granting sweet summer puddles of honey and heather. Tiny bursts of apricot light gave fleeting highlights to the already dramatic landscape, and somewhere behind me the sea whispered of the past and the road home.

About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home with my husband, my son and a collection of cats and dogs. I am forever snapping shots of things which catch my eye. 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 run the Maggies Highlands Cancer Centre, in Inverness, Scotland.

    A wonderful rich landscape of mystery.

    Certainly a sight to inspire poetic utterances – and it did!

    You can blame anything – as long as you go on writing and putting your spells on us…Beautiful. And I like your new approach with more moodiness. Photos and words go so well together, as usual. Skye is inspirational and you use it wisely! See you Sunday – I’ll mail you again – can’t wait!

    Reminds me of my August visit to Bonnie Scotland in 2012. Just beautiful. 👍

  8. pommepal says:

    That is so lyrical. Your words paint a visual picture in my mind and the photo is stunning.

  9. Wonderful, thank you, as ever. We will be pretty much city-bound over the next few weeks, taking in the festivals/fringe etc, so it is lovely to have things like your blog to help remind us of the beauty of Scotland further afield.

    Your imagery and words are magnificent as usual. If you have time check out my blog as I have added some pictures of my area. Sadly, my photography is not as gifted as yours.
