‘Bronze Age Of Scotland’ By Jennifer Cahill

A creek the color of rust
flows along the grassy bank.
It’s ripples buoy the sun-
light splashing her pallid flank.

Her long limb is cut,
cruer tauten watercolor red,
by a bronze age weapon
risen from an ancient bed.

Scottish moist marshy terrain
grabs the other foot encased
in today’s sleek rich fashion-
burnt colored armour dismays.
