NaHaiWriMo prompt: found poem

Inspiration/found:

“Soil and Soul: People Versus Corporate Power” book about the community of Eigg purchasing its land.

“…its quartz beach, called the “singing sands” (Tràigh a’ Bhìgeil) on account of the squeaking noise it makes if walked on when dry.”

Michael Dylan Welch’s question (on FB)  about islands we visited reminded me of my trip to Eigg
