A poem

the pearl and the dragon’s eyeball

By Susan Hibberd

at what age
does a child learn
about the moon
and the sun

the sun, the moon
the oceans lapping

our perfect world
made for living

at what age
does the child forget?

Susan Hibberd initially trained in theatre design but ended up teaching languages (English and German) for many years. More recently she completed an MA in Documentary Filmmaking. Creatively she is a bit of a Jack (Jill) of all trades.
