Small Stone 9, or, Great Scot!!

sitting on the grass
i watch thick waisted men
toss tree trunks

tinkling harps cascade
over the blaring of bagpipes
and the prancing of highland
dancers on a stage from far away look like
children hopping across hot coals

in the great heat of summer
i wonder why
all these people in a show of pride
wander around clothed in kilts
and ask myself

why are the men's skirts shorter?


  1. Interesting Scottish theme !

  2. Scottish gatherings are so much fun and so colourful!

  3. It was not too far from our town, a local Caledonian games--it was so much fun!
