Almassera Vella

Ann Segrave


As the days pass
at the old olive press
the white dog sheds her fur which
turns into tumbleweed, skims
over the tiles of the perfect house
snags on the matting
under the table.

As the days pass
poets gather up words
in a skein
they can unravel —
knit up again



From Ann's second collection 'Persimmon' published Oversteps Books 2014. Ann joined the course chaired by Anne-Marie Fyfe at the Almassera Vella in 2011
