this imaginal space – draft pt.ii

when the sky is clear
I look up into the face of a distant sister
so many stories rest on your shoulders
and in the nest of stars you hold in your hands
the innocent daughter
the quickening woman
old grandmother myth

  1. Just wondering if you would share some of the names in your Scottish ancestry?
    I have relations that went to NZ – names like Bonar- buried at Helensville and settled in Kaukapakapa in the 1850s. I also have Fotheringham relations who fought in the Auckland Rifles and died at Gallipoli. ‘Griffin’ was ringing a bell, but perhaps I am mistaken…
