Frozen Wilderness


It has been a while since I mentioned my favourite poetry site.

I love to listen to poems and then putter at on my collages. The one above is inspired by Jean Sprackland’s, Ice on the Beach poem. Especially, the lines,

In its wash, the ice shelf
barely shivers.

But thirty miles south,
in another town, it creaks,
under the pier, when someone kneels,

staring down like a god
through a damaged sky, onto a wilderness
of ridges and blue shadows.”

Do any of you have other poetry sites or podcasts you could recommend?
