gazing up to
Scanning for what?
fishing for stars;
after the roadside sculpture by Andy Scott near Cumbernauld
Driving between the Central Belt
And the Highlands she’s caught,
Briefly, in my peripheral vision.
Her delicate, steely frame
Rises out of an air
More aqueous than anything;
A murky, misty night.
A mermaid, far from the shore,
She is a transitional creature,
Transcendental; a confluence of ideas,
Imagery and possibilities. Her raised arms,
Unreservedly, embrace the universe.
Now, miles down the road,
She still exists, suspended
Between the hard hill and the imagination;
Between fiction and Truth.
