Movement. Sound. Nature.
Captured on film, Fragile Times is a realisation of the fragility of life, physically and mentally, during the unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic. This poem, written in the process, sets the mood:
The leaves bask in the late afternoon sun
The overhead chorale of birds
A reminder of how bustling life is
The world is slowing down
Or is it?
Who chooses the pace?
If we are still but for our whirring mind Are we really still?
Still enough to wholly listen
Do we gain a chance to reassess?
To consciously choose our own speed Our own frequency in the intricate web Has the whole web changed?
Is this the moment where a new web will be spun?
