Egg Audit

Egg Audit is filmpoem – a collaboration between the poet and visual artist Stevie Ronnie and myself. It was made in one day at Cove Park in Easter 2012 following our course – Finding the Poet’s Voice. It’s my first collaboration using film and poetry and it was a lot of fun to make!

Woodhall Loch, Dumfries and Galloway, August

Swimming amongst lily pads, the water a peaty black. My submerged limbs look orange. Rushes, reeds and trees crowd the edges of the water: alder, birch and oak.  The run-off from yesterday’s storm cradles me coldly, so that when I churn my legs and arms to generate inner heat I still sting with chill.
