A Plate, A Poem and A Flower

29 Aug

I love the way this plate smiles at us from the Welsh dresser. It says Ming on the back but there must be several Mings!DSCN4693

We went to The Asylum the other evening, Kneehigh Theatre’s Two Gentlemen of Verona in a marquee and there was a display of their time in ‘The Jungle’ in Calais. I found this poem by a refugee very moving.

    Smiling Ming plate. Exquisite. Unique.

    The Poem, gets more intriguing every time I read it. Not as dark as one might think. But it express a level of numbing regret which must stab a will to keep going. To be honest I didn’t know the camp still existed. And now I find out the numbers are at its largest.
