Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem started life as a contribution to Sarah James‘s 21st Century Poets project, with a photo of a wheelbarrow full of water as the subject.
In Greek legend, Atlas carried the world on his shoulders, and they knew the world as Gaia.
Surreal Water Wheel
day amongst the boulders
world of water on shoulders
Atlas of Atlantis
can somebody lift me higher
return passage to Gaia
