Another of the madcap ideas we have to inspire us, this is a beautiful poem from Kay Beaven, a friend of Jenny Couldrey. We asked Kay if she would be kind enough to let us use a work of hers and we would enjoy it then respond in our own personal way to it. What follows for the next 9 days are our collective responses.

Below are her words…..

Gathering Feathers

along the
inkless quills
and downy
wisps rest,
captured in 
driftwood sands.

  “see, Koro see
   how the kakahi

a seagull shrieks,
   “aue, aue!”
a plastic bag flutters
unsettling our
feather gathering.




We all thank you for the chance you have given us Kay.
