The West Uist Literary Festival drew in droves of poets and poetry lovers. The island's very own Gaelic fisherman poet Ranald Buchanan's  latest book of verse has been a best-seller throughout the Western Isles and now we are looking for folk to follow him.

We are  inviting you poets to send us in a short poem of no more than 14 lines on the subject of Wind, in keeping with our last post. It can be shorter, even a rhyming couplet.

But please, no silly ones about bodily wind! Ecological, humorous preferred.

No prizes, simply publication on The West Uist Chronicle. Become a published poet!

How to do it - simply post it in a comment to this post. If some good wee poems blow in, we'll post them in next week's issue.

Good luck.
