A Manifold Poem


In our last ‘The Dirt’ blog for Manifold Portrait I introduced Caroline Reid – go read that blog here- and Caroline has now put up some of her thoughts over on her blog, including a lovely poetry response ‘Into Spring’.


Here’s an excerpt:


The falling dirt is gentle,  a soft sound

None of us can say exactly what it sounds like

but we know what it doesn’t sound like

The falling dirt does not sound like a waterfall,

or drums, says Eugene.

or the radio.

You’ll be able to read some more of Caroline’s observations and responses at our sharing on Sunday 6th September at Rotary Park, Berri. Our sharing is a gentle invitation for people to experience some of what we’ve started thinking about during this first, early stage of the Manifold Portrait project.
