The new cover photo featured on the home page for Dancing In The Current was taken by my husband Nigel at St Clair Beach in Dunedin. The almost century-old piles stagger up the sand, remnants of a groyne constructed in 1921. Behind them the esplanade lights are reflected in the wet sand. He took the photo at dusk as the previously fiery sunset faded into cool blue.
Also featured are TWO POEMS:
The first poem Survivors is my response to the photo.
The second poem The Weight Upon The Waves is by Damien B. Donnelly, an invited response that’s wonderfully perceptive (see the notes after the poem).
