Little Bones in Red Clay

Little bones in red clay is an unearthing: a small and personal quest to discover why we pursue the things we do – why we migrate, why art matters, how political dialogue sparks our veins, how love of landscape makes us tread carefully but awkwardly.

This collection of poems explores identity and place at the interface of global fragility, testing light and dark, and the persistence of play.

    I love, in these poems, that I am slipped between tree roots and fallen leaves as completely as into the canvases in a gallery, into jazz beats and into the warmths and poignancies of human touch. These poems’ “little bones” are wrapped with regard, Helga’s tender fascinations becoming fully our own.

    Helga Jermy’s new collection, ‘Little bones in red clay’ is an embrace, encompassing her arrival in a new hemisphere, this island’s history, landscape, the fauna and flora, the community and people she loves. The intensity of experience as wrens flit throughout comes full circle. It feels complete, the river flowing in words, the visceral challenges living on this threatened planet and her compassionate scrutiny.
