Caedmon’s Face

At the monastery of Whitby,
on a day when the sun sank through the sea,

Who constantly keeps glorifying our ancient...Read More

Incubate in the mirror

Unsure about the day

Sinister Nature

Nature has produced many a sinister thing
with honest answers slow in explaining. 
For example, take the nightshade family
of plants renowned for their toxicity.

Even the common apple, praised for its
recommended good and healthful benefits
has its toxin, not in its flesh, but...Read More
