A Shetland Summer


The gannet

penetrates

the water

like a missile

piercing

the reflection.





The otter

streamlines

the water

like a prow

splitting

the reflection.





The whale

erupts from

the water

like a volcano

smashing

the reflection.





The watcher

stands by

the water

like a statue

breathing

the reflection.


Jan Hedger
