These poems seek to explore ideas of renewal and change in the place George Mackay Brown called home, Orkney.
The majority of the poems were written between 2019 and 2021 during periods of ‘lockdown’ and release. Others are drawn from previous work celebrating George Mackay Brown’s 20th anniversary in 2016 and the commemoration of the 900th anniversary of St Magnus in 2017.
These poems are a celebration, a reflection on place and relationships that are foundational and joyous, and ultimately pass into silence.
