#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.

Andrew Greig
