With prayers for those struck by storms Harvey, Irma and Jose
island's abandoned beauty
stayed on first name terms
with the coming storm,
of its violent betrayal,
of the beserker landscaping
that tore a new path towards it.
(Where are all the birds today?)
of four poems written by Steve Page in response to
paintings at the BEAT
(Borough of Ealing Art Trail) exhibit at St John's Church, West Ealing
in September 2017.
