Calanais: Moot-Points…


We may have

to take issue with Burl.


There is nothing cramped about this monument.


And that word implies, does it not, unfit for purpose?

Which Callanish most certainly is not.


From a distance the stones resemble figures

gathering to moot,

and even up close that notion is

difficult to shake.


And if they gather to converse

then it is with the moon and stars

that they hold congress.


Unfortunately, at this time of year,

at this latitude on the globe,

we will be lucky to see any

of those heavenly bodies…


And if the ‘white night’

fails to scupper us

cloud cover undoubtedly will!
