Iona: a beginning

This was written upon arrival in Iona, before dinner.  We had traveled all day by coach and ferry from Inveraray.  

I came here for space and time,
Came to this rocky small outcrop
Of a place
2 planes
2 coaches
2 ferries away.
No wonder the Romans
Never bothered.
There is little hope
I can help much
With the family kitchen renovation
From here.
My room is the accessible sort:
Handbars and grips,
A seat in the shower.
I will be reminded every morning
I am limited.
Not a bad reminder.
Not a bad thing to see.
Not a bad thing
To wake up to.
