Dunnottar castle


Recommended Posts

Tears are launched like lifeboats

rescuing thoughts of Dunnottar Castle,

the sea has many windows it cannot climb through,

there are many landscapes I can no longer preview.

The strange dream I once had is seeking me-in which

I was stranded in an ark on top of a promontory

overlooking the castle, with the waters below drained

and all that remained those drowned painting the sea

as I sketched two promontory's.

Hi Barry, This was hard for me to follow. I am assuming it is a dream sequence which often don't make sense but I wanted this to go somewhere and it didn't quite get there for me. I love L3 "the sea has many windows it cannot climb through" . I wanted to climb through those windows to see the ruins. I wanted to explore and visit the history but it didn't happen here. I still wish I was writing like this, artistically using words to set a tone, paint a picture.
