There's a lot of water about in your poems. Is that intentional or coincidence? Are you waving or drowning..?

Sorlil said...

thankyou swiss!!

not so much intentional more like I can't keep it out! years ago when I started writing i thought I'd never be able to write a poem without the moon making an appearence, I guess some things are just lingering in the unconscious!

also I live next the the Firth of Clyde, and since StAnza my mind's been full of images of St Andrews and the North Sea so a lot of these poems have really come from a mash of both places!

Well, keep your wellies on! Or at least have a snorkel to hand...
