You can see Part I of The Light Always Returns on our sister blog, Tranature.

The skies and changing light reminded me of a song by the wonderful Scottish artist and musician Dougie MacLean:

Wishing you all a blessed Wednesday,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

Haibun: Memories in Motion

It’s our first journey to the bay since the hundred days of lockdown. In my mind’s eye we visited this pebbled shore a few times, walking through old photos and the memories collected. Now I can feel the wind buffet around us, see my grandmother’s face appear in the clouds once more.

the kindness of herring gulls

During lockdown I’ve been looking at new ways of merging poems and images and participated in a few collaborative projects with other poets, artists and photographers. The above video is the first I wove together and you can see the second one I produced in A Star Follows.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx.
