In awe at Loch Awe
Different shades of sunset blue, kiss
Different shades of sunset orange
Needled in between the strip of pillowed cloud
Puffed into shape by the Westen Highland air
Hovering beside the mountains
Acting as guardian to the loch.
Changes its look every 10 minutes
Titlating the eyes
Teasing the emotions
This old mother
Showing off like a child saying “look at me” !.
Clan Campbell territory
Provides the ghostly voice, and asks
“Please take care of our home,
You come with your expectation,
But be warned…
You will never leave”…
The loch has had the final say
This Jacobite has won,
Forever in the memory.
Loch Awe, Argyll & Bute, Western Highlands, Scotland.
