Wasteland Project – chugging along

A little update.

I finally worked through Section 3 – The Fire Sermon, which was tough going – very demanding, in my interpretation.

Amazingly quickly, I have also written through Section 4 – Death by Water. It was a short section and I found my way through that without too much trouble.

It’s been awhile since I posted anything from the project, so will share in this post, the last poem of the Death by Water section – a Seventeen Syllable poem in conclusion (below).

I’m now at Section 5 – What The Thunder Said, and looking forward to this final stretch of around seventy poems to write.

weeping (is the lingerer)

Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you


of weeping
long after
funerary rites
are done
