Another Scottish Holiday - Poem by Sheena Blackhall

Here are the Mackintosh family
Wearing their gloves and wellies
Enjoying a seasonal break
A large fat salmon cloud,
Lies on a plate grey sky
Exuding rain

They are joined by their Scottish terrier
Wearing his tartan collar
Rolling his Rs as he barks

The sea has come to join them
It brings offerings of boat planks,
Twine, three plastic cartons

They will send picture postcards
To all their friends
Having a lovely time
They will say. They will post them
Into the sad mouth of a letterbox

The large fat salmon cloud
Will become a whale
