Freedom in Constraint Poem #2

Freedom in Constraint is a sequence of formal poems focusing on the themes of isolation and social distancing and the wider issues and challenges to community and family arising out of the current Covid 19 pandemic.

The second poem in the sequence is also a sonnet Planting. Again, my daughter Martha has made a short film to accompany the poem which you can view below.

I hope to upload new poems every week or so until I reach the end of the sequence. I hope you enjoy. Stay safe!
