The Milecastle Haiku (Week 12)

Milecastle 77

Raven Bank at the
T-junction. A glimpse of hills,
Catch Solway’s salt scent.

Milecastle 78

Kirkland in a field.
Holiday campers ignore
The mighty frontier.

Milecastle 79

Solway House on a
Low rise, safe against raiders,
Watches haaf netters.

Milecastle 80

Bowness, last of all.
Stacked beneath a mighty fort,
Under the village.

Epilogue

Milecastle haiku
Are done, but the Wall lives on;
Speaking the landscape.
