scratching the surface


And so we come into Lent. Here's one of my drain cover pics and a poem I wrote about the experience:









LENT [SCRATCHING THE SURFACE]


this season
drives me hard
into my disturbing desert
and keeps me here

confronting stones,
pinnacles
and wild possibilities

face in the dust
with only the
hope of a third day

Ian, I love your poetry. I also love your drain cover pics. This one has a particularly organic pattern. Heard of someone recently who used to take rubbings of drain covers ...

(Sorry if you get this twice. I tried to post before and got some kind of error)
