Tuesday Poem: Ashes - Tara Divilly and Derek Walcott

and in the salt chuckle of rocks
with their sea pools, there was the sound
like a rumour without any echo

of History, really beginning.

Sculpture and photograph, Tara Divilly

Text, Derek Walcott from The Sea is History

This image and the accompanying lines of poetry are part of Tara Divilly's new exhibition, called 'Ashes', at the Ferrari Art Gallery in Vevey, Switzerland.  Tara is from Reunion and works in the Studio Sem in Pietrasanta.  You can see more of her work at   www.taradivilly.com 

The Tuesday Poets are an international group who try to post a poem every Tuesday and take it in turns to edit the main website.  We're all very different.  If you'd like to see what the other Tuesday Poets are posting, please click on this link. 


  1. Oh, how I love this poem, that chuckle of rocks and all that could be implied... I am keen to find out more about Tara Divilly, too. I am going to Reunion later this year... You don't often come across people who are from there!

    Thank you for this. I will remember this one.

    1. Let me know when you're going to Reunion, Michelle and I'll tell Tara - she's a wonderful artist!
