#Orkneyhour Mon 23rd March 2015, 9pm
By Naomi Bremner, Mar 23 2015 11:34AM
The first #Orkneyhour of 2015, and a celebration of Community in Orkney!
...It is the way Scotland looks to the South,
the way we enter friends' houses
to leave what we came with, or flick
the kettle's switch and wait.
This is where I want to live,
close to where the heart gives out,
ruined, perfected, an empty arch against the sky
where birds fly through instead of prayers
while in Hoy Sound the ferry's engines thrum
this life this life this life.
The community is strong in Orkney, it's one of those things that makes Orkney special. From Community Associations, Sports Clubs, Playgroups and Playparks, SWRI, to all the festivals and volunteering that makes things happen.
