Apologies - I had no shots with spume but this one does show the correct locale.




                                                     snail mail

                                                       a tactile tendril
                                      letting someone touch my words
                                maybe getting a little ink on my fingers
                                      as i share the day on paper

                                                         then
                                              ceremony over
                                   i head for the post office
                        a three mile drive on a windswept wintry day
                         blown like a leaf along the lip of the loch
                            glancing down at ribbons of spume
               while my head fills with the fact and feel of the blues

                                        pull up in the village
                                   wait for the end of the track
                      then exchange pleasantries and buy a stamp
                                  it is both right and rite
                        
                                        posting a letter
                                    just posting a letter…
