It’s poet’s choice of words this week so I thought I’d share with you some of my photographs of Edinburgh – a city I love so much – and my first attempts at Shadorma poetry…
It calls me
This Scottish City
Edinburgh’s dark shadows
Perfect time and place
Adorned like parcels
Pink in blue
My home from home forever
The best gift of all
I see you
Bright castle hiding
Such a blue sky highlights you.
Nestled on a hill
Me and mum
Two gals out
But much more – mother daughter
Friends, always best friends.

Ah, you can see I’m home-sick already! Missing my mum and dad and Edinburgh. Sigh.
Do you have a home from home that calls to you too?

Thank you! I am so home-sick for Edinburgh… ugh..
I do love these Shadorma especially the one about you and your Mum 💜💜
Thank you Willow. Yes I’m missing her lots. We get on so well but don’t see her, dad and my brother as much as I’d like to.
That’s the trouble these days family is no longer next door 💜
