Returning was the returning writephoto challenge from Sue Vincent in January. I caught up with the second one. Now Sue is having eye trouble and has had to skip blogging for a while till that’s sorted. I know how close I came to that situation in November, so I hope Sue is sorted very soon.

I thought I’d do another haiku this week, for the wonderful picture Sue posted on January 21st, with the prompt ‘Returning’.

It reminds me of doing bird surveys on the Isle of Mull in 2008 and 2010. A patch had to be surveyed in April and again in June. Because of the difficulty of getting people to wild places, I did April one year, and June the other. I saw some great birds.

This gap between the bits of moorland reminds me of the Ensay Burn, a stream which runs off the moorland near the place I stayed. It features in the new book coming in April: The Messenger Misadventures. More soon – or click over to the Princelings website for more information.

Returning – a haiku

Walking the moorlands

Staff in hand, and cirrus sky

The wilds bring me peace

    Hi Jemima – perfect Haiku … love the words and I can see you walking the moorland; the bird watching must have been special – great memories. All the best – Hilary
