The Water Lathe

The Water Lathe is a series of poems which took shape whilst I was reading two books of very different character: Ursula Le Guin’s “The Lathe of Heaven”, and Izaak Walton’s “The Compleat Angler”. The confluence of seeming contradictory tales often brings things to my mind, and these curious bed(side) fellows certainly brought forth words aplenty. All are associated with water, language, myth and mystery. Most are based around the canals, becks and rivers of my local patch (with the odd Dumfries and Galloway thrown in).

Follow the tabs on the drop down menus for the poems (sometimes things like Kindle don’t do this well – I’m on it…).
