  I am working on a new Papadil
book containing, information from the Isle of Rum and prose poems, poetry around the life of the hermit
Beccan.

 
   Gulls stitch waves
     to the edge of the sky
     call echoing psalters
     across the waves

     Black sky
       clear stars   
        upon black water  
       draw ones and twos
       of brightness
       from his outstretched hand
