Wind and Tide

I looped round Harris before another storm blew through, chasing echoes from the past: old saints and their stories; old places filled with memory, fleeting shadows from another time.

I drove back through a landscape of splintered rock as old as the earth, leaving the beach and its impossible confluence behind.
