Lochwinnoch – a poem by Lindsey Stewart



Yachts sit silently on still water

Soft white sails await life giving breeze

Crew sit idly, breathing slowly

Waves lap gently at the hull

Seagulls circle overhead, beaks wide

Screeching mockingly into stillness.

Small child crouches by the water

Finger points towards the reeds

Jackdaw lands, tilts head in recognition

Its yellow eye staring into sunlight

Child giggles, body rocking

Holds out hand and offers bread.

Further on a figure crouching

Tall grass hides his slender frame

Staying silent, watching, waiting

Hands clasped firm round magic eye

Does he search for something special

Or is his joy right here, right now.
