Towards the Hebrides
Staffa is an organ
Thrown overboard by giants long ago.
Jura is a beast with its head down, sleeping,
Its back volcanic, its winds eroded.
Tiree is a gust of fields and houses
Low in the water on the world's rim.
Lewis is a congregation of juddled srmons
Battened-down hatches in a mist of whisky.
Eigg is one milk tooth biting the sky
Searching thirstily among sagging clouds.
by Kenneth C Steven.
Poetry inspires my paintings. I have recently come across the works of Kenneth C Steven he captures the beauty of the Hebrides in his writing. My painting was inspired by the wetlands of Lewis and is titled 'Towards the Hebrides' oil on canvas 60 x 60 cm.
