To The Land, 2016 (Extract – first three sections)
It starts like this: with the sound of rain, heard, not on leaves, or the roof of a hut, but from deep inside the earth.
And it starts like this: with wild cyclamen - the architecture of its petals like a folded secret, their colour resonantly pink against the damp brown of late summer soil. A flower as riddle.
it starts like this: with the three most common characteristics of gardeners –
economy; simplicity and hospitality. And with the names of patron saints of
gardens: St Fiacre; St Isidore; and St Phocas.
