Weekly Writing Challenge: Digging for Roots

misty-mountains-water

Home…

Bleak Highland landscape –

Damp mist-shrouded mountain-sides,

Brooding weathered skies –

Mirrors my melancholy,

Reflects my passionate soul.

Although I currently live in England, Scotland is the land of my birth, and however much I may love experiencing different landscapes from across the globe, nothing touches my emotions in quite the same visceral way as the spectacularly beautiful landscapes of home.

This blue-toned bleak landscape was taken this morning from the main-line train travelling southwards from Inverness to London, and I found the particular mix of solitary tree, wild heavy sky, delicate morning mist and smooth-surfaced water beautifully captured my own peaceful-yet-restless inner tensions.
