Poetry

Distant Isle

The tranquil waves shimmer and flow,

Beneath blue-sky’s iridescent glow.

Streaks of silver appear and fade

With dark cobalt and brilliant jade.

This aqua flow of changing light

Mirrors the luminous sky, so bright.

And in the distance an island lies;

Within a sea of restless tides.

The isle is grey with amethyst hues,

Pristine shores and stunning views

I long to visit this arcane place,

Its rocky crags, seascapes and space.

Sue Wood

Timeless Shores is a poetic journey describing the natural beauty of the island, through the seasons. Each poem is enhanced by a colourful image of a painting or photograph. The poems are written in an evocative way to allow the reader to enjoy Skye’s natural wonders through verse.

JLH 5.0 out of 5 stars A book to treasureReviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 May 2020Verified Purchase

So pleased that I found this book. As a long time resident on the Isle of Skye, it captured so many aspects of what I love about about living on the island. Both the poems and the art describe so well what is special to me.
It is a book I will treasure and return to read again and again.One person found this helpful
