Bland On Bland – Isolation

Bland On Bland – The BookThe theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “Isolation“.

Bland On Bland – Call of the Water

Bland On Bland – The BookThe theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “Call Of The Water“.

JVG’s theme this week was “Call of the Water” and by a strange piece of luck I had been able to visit The Ian Potter Centre at Fed Square and been looking at among other things ‘Slumbering Sea’ by Tom Roberts.

It’s a painting of the area I grew up in and seemed to be the perfect inspiration for today’s poem.
