"Sentience: Speaking in Blossom"

Using watercolour and acrylic on paper, covered with a ground of gesso and shellac, layered, I was inspired by the interconnections I found in three poems, by three different poets - Brian Johnstone, John Burnside and Diana Hendry - and attempted to work those interconnections into one piece.
The poems are "Home" by John Burnside (in "Common Knowledge" 1991, Secker & Warburg), "Apple Sense" by Diana Hendry (in "Borderers" 2001, Peterloo Poets) and "Sentience" by Brian Johnstone (in "Homing" 2004, Lobby Press).
