I see your stillness, my town is resting.

I see darkness, still, the sun is rising.

Ancient and historical, my town presents its old houses, church roofs, greenery and sea side.

I see darkness, no more.


  1. I like your poetic description of Edinburgh. The “darkness” brings to mind a notion of a gothic, mysterious city.


  2. Sharp inter-connected images – portraying the cityscape. The final line underscores the sense of hope the poem build up to.
