  1. I love the conjunction of imagery here: the colourful, sensuous religious imagery with the solid mystery of the soil. There is a particularly pleasing feel to the lines ‘and the black songs of bedrock/ pound rough in our hearts’. Those vowels are visceral. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks so much for the kind words. My habit is to leave these first drafts up for just a day or two, then take them down to sit for a while, so this one is coming down now, but thanks for stopping by – nice to hear from you!
