The Bones of Time poems

Project Ekphrasis, a joint venture between Manx artist Carola Colley and Usha Kishore, resulted in the poetisation of Carola’s series of abstract plein air paintings entitled Bones of Time, illustrating the Manx landscape. All the landscape sites, that have been chosen as subjects of the Bones of Time paintings, have some ancient/archaeological significance. The last eight poems of Usha Kishore’s forthcoming collection, On Manannnan’s Isle, are a set of poems resulting from the project and are entitled The Bones of Time poems. The poems closely follow Carola Colley’s work using oil painting techniques and terms, while exploring the archeological significance of the landscapes. Some of these poems have been part of the Lindfield Arts Festival West Sussex, in May 2013 and published in the Lindfield Arts Festival Souvenir anthology entitled Poems for the People in July 2013.
