Mystery & Survival


There was an online invitation to draw something which would relate in some way to William Golding’s novel, The Inheritors. To enlarge the drawing just click on it.

This sound poem is a bit of an experiment intended to go with my drawing!

da/ fa/ da!
earth fire
ah! ah! ee!
haku! haku! bear!
hunt kill eat we!
fire water earth air!

  1. Lovely poem Eric – reminds me of something I wrote when my daughter was a baby – I used her rather percussive vocabulary to make a poem. Enjoying your blog. All the best! Sarah
