Sculpture, Angel and A Poem

22 Nov

Outside the bank in Truro we came across a sculpture. I need to find out more about it.

Christmas Angel in Truro

The following very moving poem came my way and I have permission to share it. It is one of the ‘ghost generation’ in the sculpture above.

Eternity by Kim Ridgeon

If only no-one could see the borders, whether from outer space on here on our blue planet. Thank you for this, Kim and Jean for introducing me to it.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts in such beautifully written poems. I love the Pockets one too but wasn’t sure about sharing it because of the photo. What do you think? 🙂

        Yes, of course. You are welcome to share any of the poems. When I taught I encouraged the sharing of work for comment, consideration and whatever a reader might get from it. I tend to illustrate them on social media with photographs etc as pictures tend to grab attention in this sphere of communication!
