Insha- Allah is arabic for 'God willing' and is the name of the boat shown in the painting. The harbour at Kingholm Quay near Dumfries provides good subject matter for artists and poets alike.

'Safe in harbour Insha Allah sits
tethered to bollard
secured by rope and line
shining like a precious stone
almost contented she rests
raised up on metal girders
above the mud and silt
biding her time.. waiting
forever patient
for her master
to steer her with the tide
towards the open sea
perhaps to fish
or just to taste the salted air
and feel the swell beneath her bows
the purpose of her birth.'

'Insha Allah' -from the book 'Sang O the Nith'
