Welcome to Earth Shadow.
Over the coming months we’ll be showcasing a series of poems from writers from around the world based on themes of climate change and the environment.
What cloud formation,
storm gathering phenomenon,
that the dark should so plunge and curl?
Curving like first grim screen-saver,
twirling without pinwheel stick,
how the sweep, when gust holds still,
how dusky changes into night,
charcoal to the shade of grey?
Till they on pier-pile-starlings
or girders settle, flight-
the wheeling sky.
