Photography inspires poetry

A very rewarding development for me as the artist to receive an email with a difference, courtesy of Daniel Packham, a recent visitor to the current exhibition of 'Recovering The Past'.

In his email, Daniel explained how the exhibition had prompted him to put pen to paper; the result, this very fine poem entitled 'Iron Harvest'.



Raining from a steel sky,

The iron reaper seeks it's Mark,

What horror, descending in a breath,

To harvest fear and flesh.


Entombed in subterranean slumber,

The reaper ascends, 

Through season on season,

Through time and earth,

A century passed by,

Unshackled ,re emerged,

To seek its crop of tears,

Beneath an Autumn sky.


My sincere thanks to Daniel, and his able demonstration of how one artistic medium can inspire another
