Ben Vorlich

First Munro, Ben Vorlich, 985m

The path extends in steep ascent beyond my range of vision,

relentless climb,

stones, grass, stones, grass, treeless landscape.

On descent

I pick up detail,

elm leaves laced by iridescent green beetles,

oak moss lichen upholsters a gate, a soft invitation to a new landscape.
