Circular Poetry Contributor: Jennifer Liston

This contribution to the Letter.Box.Stamp.Collect. project is from poet Jennifer Liston with her poem yesterday’s images. Jennifer says this of the piece:

This poem was inspired by an image taken by photographer Robert Rath . The long-exposure image features ‘ghosts’ of people walking by a market stall in the Rocks area of Sydney. The stall was selling modern and historic photographs of the city. The photo got me thinking about the circular nature of time and space and the concept that our history and memories shape our future, all occurring concurrently.

Jennifer’s latest collection is Lead Skeletons from White Wave Press and you can find more of her work at her website.

  3. I love how the visual- the fading out of the lines to the poem’s mid point- works with the subject matter.It really impacts. Thanks, Jen
