Haiku – fortress

Tantallon Castle and Bass Rock


You think you are strong

Walls build by hand, block by block

Find your Middle Ground


Break down the fortress

Dismantle and declutter

Find peace beyond ruin

This photo is of Tantallon Castle with Bass Rock behind it. Its close to where I grew up and is a stone’s throw from my Brother and my Mum in East Lothian. I haven’t seen them in person since July 2019.

I’m someone who built the blocks to be strong, but I also need to let go and acknowledge the sweet sadness of not being able to be there. I miss Scotland and the family, and hold them in my heart.

  1. It’s so difficult to be separated from our loved ones. My sister hasn’t seen her adult children in a year due to borders being closed. Sending love and hugs from afar Val. May you be reunited with your loved ones soon πŸ’•πŸŒˆ
