In Manchester…

Just two hours ago, while I was sorting and filing cuttings and poetry magazines, a police helicopter was directly overhead.  Then I saw this photo on an issue of Poetry News:-

THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE

BECOME GHOSTS INSIDE

OF YOU AND LIKE THIS

YOU KEEP THEM ALIVE

The photo is of a light installation by Robert Montgomery.  It was going to be shown at National Poetry Day Live, 2015.

One thought on “In Manchester…

    I really like this – the idea of people you love becoming ghosts inside that you keep alive – it’s very comforting. I can relate to this, and I often think about the spirits of late friends / family living on inside of me.
