aerial combat (ii)…

 

tern by tern speed barbed beaks across the shrinking gap to sting the golden prey

as raven pair enter void above the nest strewn ebb-flow isle

retreating eagles spiral climb on unseen thermals rising

from the dark warmth of heather to return to terns

joined by screeching gulls in impure alliance

of white and grey over blue ripples

of the rising evening loch
