Jane Dougherty Writes

My response to Paul Brookes’ ekphrastic challenge ‘This day’. You can see the photographic image here


In the tree slowly turning
to stone a face looks out
man bear dog
with an expression
of great sadness

the sight of this world
slowly turning
from green and growing
to the stone
of closed hearts and motorways
the last light in brown eyes
slowly turning.
