Write to Reconcile Anthology II:
Creative writing for reconciliation
These lyrics of Edwin Starr came to my mind while
listening to the words of internationally renowned author Shyam
Selvadurai at the launch of the Write to Reconcile Anthology II
which was held recently at the BMICH.
EDVARD TUSK: without his face
I waited on the balls of my feet, the back of my
calves tightening, aching, my abdomen, in turn, tensing stiff from
the posture, head craned and every ripple of the air wafting in down
my flared nostril distinct,
Genese, innovative and spiritually inspired
Exhibited at the Lionel Wendt over the last
weekend, Genese may mean ‘beginning’ in French but spelt Genesis has
more spiritual weight as it is the first book in the Old Testament
in the Holy Bible with the same meaning.
