What began as a single poem written on a long drive into the countryside north of Glasgow has evolved into an imaginative collection exploring memory, journey, vulnerability, and love. This book of haunting verse ranges in theme, with observations on everything from a plane's ascent into the evening sky to imagined piano notes being absorbed by the earth. The beauty of Scotland combines with a sense of human fragility as the poems examine the relationship of an old Spanish exile and his wife, the memory of a father's voice, and much more.
