Three Days in a Wishing Well

Here 's a little taster from our latest book of poetry - Three Days In A Wishing Well by Kerrin P. Sharpe. If you're going to be stuck anywhere for three days this is the book to read!

like rain the thunder

inside the tall gothic church
a man kisses the pieta
max is at the organ
composing a creation hymn
called apple and snow
all night the wind
wraps itself around the city
like a bell that does
not ring in danger but prayer
and genya's voice
falls from a clock
as she calls her children
kazia, stefan, hendrich, janek
her hand closes around
a winter apple
and somebody probably kazia
puts the kettle on
then all four children
gather their shadows
and become birds
