painting 'lineage'

"Lineage"
Eileen Millard





Eileen Paul Millard and I were inspired to combine Eileen's paintings and my poetry in a book, Stone and Water, which was published in 1992 by Canoe Press. Our second book, Journey to the Centre, this time with art in color, is now in print.

Excerpt from Lineage

An empty hole
The pebbles drop one by one
I wait to hear the splash
But hear nothing
Soundless
Listen
I forgive you!
Father, Daddy, can you hear me?
I forgive you!

The moss is silent.

-- Ann Bardens
