Borrowed Dust: Crossing

I love it when I find poems that connect with my research. Charlie’s poem Crossing over at Borrowed Dust hit the mark today, as I filled out my end of year PhD report. Especially the verse,

Elegant double-helix,
Jacob’s spiral ladder:
hides, convoluted and coiled,
betwixt deo and imago,
bears the inscrutable runes of
dreamers rising from the
dust.
“Very good!”

Reminiscent of Isobel Thrillings poem “Before Lazarus”.
