An Exhibition and Recital in Support of Christian Aid Week

To support Christian Aid, on Saturday 7 May from 10.00 till 5.00 at Christ Church New Malden there will be an exhibition of paintings and photographs by two local artists inspired by the seasons. The exhibition will be accompanied throughout the day by live music also inspired by the seasons. The church will be open all day on Saturday for visitors.

On Sunday 8 May at 3.00 there will be a recital of music and poetry using the seasons as its theme.

Entry to the exhibition and recital is free but all donations will go to Christian Aid.

Here is a link to Christian Aid where you can find out more about Christian Aid Week and the work of Christian Aid.

Anyway here is a short poem to whet your appetite

A November Night Llanberis Pass

All night wild white water
clawed the slopes
of the pass,
glutted the streams,
engorged Llyn Gwynant –
bloated, black and heavy.

All night the mountain
reverberated like the tightened skin of a drum
with falling water.
The air torn in two
on Tryfan’s serrated edges.

And next morning
emerging out of grey light
smothered fields
blotted out along the river’s line.
And broken slates - grey glazed
splintered debris across the streets.
