Seven Wonders of Our City

Ilkley Moor by writer Kamal Kaan

A MAJESTIC CARPET UNFURLING
GOD’S OWN GARDEN.

WE
WERE
HERE

HAND IN HAND
CARVED OUR NAMES INTO THIS LAND
4/9/11, X+O
PERFUME OF PURPLE HEATHER
HEARTS TURNED TO FEATHER
HIGH ON SKY.

YESTERDAY,
LOVE WAS A ROCK
NOW,
TIME A THIEF THAT COMES
SNEAKING THROUGH BRANCHES-
