Jim Murdoch



Looking at
the astronomy of footprints
in the cold morning light

I could see
the madness of the night before
ingrained upon the sand.

Her watch passed,
the moon draws away from the beach
and leaves me standing there

as alone as the sky.


Jim Murdoch is a Scottish writer. He started off as a poet but has ended up doing having a crack at just about most things one can do with words. Apart from a musical. And don’t hold your breath there.
