Vole in Poetry!!!


The Vole is a bit of a ‘literarat’got some cultured friends – one very fine gull form over Toab way sent us this – she is one of the notorious Stromness Scribblers who write together every other Tuesday in the Piskie Kirk.


Church Road to Christie’s Brae

You’re allowed to be human

after the last six weeks.


Don’t push it!

And coarse laughter echoes in the lanes.


But, yes.


Our faulted selves

like graceless gulls


pick over the shore

where our feathers will surely lie.


But, yes.


Maybe a little less,

or close to something more.



For TM and friends
