Icy fingers of mist,
coverlet of wispy apparitions.
Darkened waves gently kiss
Uruquart Castle lying in ruins.
Stormy clouds colored gray,
no sound not even a warbler's note
nor movement of an animal darting away,
leaving a sense of how remote.
Perfect place for Nessie's haunts
as goose bumps cover my skin.
On my neck icy fingers taunts,
creating turbulent emotions within.
Feeling a little bit disquiet
as I think nervously,
perhaps Nessie isn’t the only spirit
haunting Loch Ness elusively.
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
When I was stationed in Scotland, I did a little bit of sightseeing and went to see Loch Ness hoping to see the monster. The ruins of Urquhart castle lined the land. It was an eerie day, a slow mist covering the land and not a single sound. No birds....no wind....nothing. It made me wonder if there were other spirits haunting the land.
