Loafing around up on the Cairngorm plateau
Has many advantages –
You can loiter in peace with the deep blue sky,
Surrounded by tiny dots of stone after stone
Fading into the ten directions,
Eat some homemade granola and bathe in fresh mountain streams –
After contemplating two deer cooling down on the snow
I get back to a little drawing in grey and pink
