Product description

From the Publisher

Rachael Clyne's poetry has the power to call your attention to life as it is, not seen through some pretty pretence or vacuous filter but directly and to the point, yet always with compassion both for herself and her subject. Rachael's vision can make us laugh, cry, feel anger or joy as the rhythms within her writing awaken the passion of our inner witness.

Two poems from the collection:

Cape Cornwall

On the path, a man lies buried
nearby the grave of a dog
empty leash
coiled grass snake

A bleak promontory rises
uncompromising death’s head
topped by crematoria chimney
memorial to tin plunder

Crossing a narrow rock bridge
Charybdis fumes below
black rock teeth bite into a savage sea
they cast our friend’s bones
to wind and wave
here at the edge
where wild meets wild

You sit reluctant
on the threshold
as sinister waves
suck at your soul
unready yet to embrace the stark rage
of other deaths looming

A rowboat, silhouette black
bobs in the distance

Yet there is healing here
embracing the edge
where wild meets wild

- Rachael Clyne

Islets Of Langerhan

(a diabetic lament)

Paint me a sky
rose and gold
exotic paradise with sleepy lagoon
cry of parakeet winging over treetops
on steamy mountain slopes

I dream of a sweet archipelago
where honey blossom drowns the senses
and chocolate pools are fringed with meringue

But these mysterious isles
remain forever out of reach
a horizon fantasy
for this small vessel is becalmed
as a sugary undertow
crystallises the bows
and I starve in a sea of plenty

- Rachael Clyne
