Tuesday Poem this week hosts a powerful environmental poem by Meliors Sims called Miner's Cook accompanied by a needle-felted artwork No MIne is an Island. The editor this week is Claire Beynon who says:
I chose Meliors's poem Miner's Cook for this week's Tuesday Poem for the way it exemplifies so much of what I understand her creative process to be about - namely, a call to re-establish the right relationship with our earth; a plea to wake up to the many covert and overt ways in which we cause our planet harm; in this poem and the accompanying artwork, No Mine is an Island, Meliors quite literally stitches into relief our blind disregard and wilful mismanagement of our natural resources.
