White thorns, spinning sky,
each horizontal axis
sings the trinity.
One zenith, then another,
the crowns abide in the air.
White Thorns is the second pamphlet by essayist and poet Brian Lewis (following East Wind, a sequence of lyrical essays and haiku). It comprises a sequence of 68 poems based on the author’s walks around the Isle of Axholme, where the peatlands of South Yorkshire meet the flatlands of Lincolnshire, and wind farms and pylon forests thread the horizon. White Thorns is published as a hand-stitched pamphlet with hand-stamped covers, and comes with an individual poem, presented in an envelope as an artist’s multiple.
