Tanka – An Cuan Mòr

Nèamh, Cruinne-cè,
uisge agus teine ceangail
Sinn abair soraidh
“Ta mo ghràdh ort a-ghnàth,
chi mi a-rithist thu”


(translation from Scottish Gaelic)

Tanka – Big Ocean

Heaven, Earth,
fire and water unite
We say farewell
“I will love you always,
we’ll meet again”

    1. Thanks for your kind comment, Gaelic isn’t my first language but it’s the language of my heart and my forebears, and i find it highly emotive and aesthetically beautiful.
