The Week We Went to Orkney

Last week was all about stones. Nest spaces, cairns, brochs, walls, scree, cliffs, standing stones, hearth places, earth houses, burial chambers.

And birds, including arctic skuas, which I'd never seen before, and several daylight owls. It was cold and wet and sometimes windy. There will be many stone poems.

Wonderful. I have dreamed of going to Orkney and will really appreciate your poems and anything else you have to share from there!
