30 Words Thursday

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Scotland’s decision today to separate or not has been weighing on my mind.It reminds me of the separatist movement in Quebec that sought to have Quebec it’s own country, separate from Canada.

My father was born in Scotland and I have been there once, the year after he died. I loved the country. But to me, it is part of Great Britain.

They will make their own decision, just as Quebec did. I wish them well, whatever their decision.

These thoughts inspired my poem today:

SCOTLAND

Yes – No

Stay or go

A  referendum

To decide the future

Of this proud country.

Glasgow, Edinburgh

Isle of Sky

Bagpipes, kilts

What sights I’ve seen

Home of my ancestors.
