Four from New Contrast 140


Small Boat

She sails far south,
into growlers and ice.
Yet she is well-fitted,
crafted like a dolphin to love the sea.
When light fills her high sail
it flashes through the mind’s eye
though she is far beyond
satellite and radio.

Ken Barris

New Contrast 140This is the final issue of the 2007 volume of New Contrast. It is late, I hope for the last time.

This is also the last cover of this set of my love, Sonja Wilker’s, paintings. I hope you have admired them as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you. The 2008 volume will feature a new set of artwork and a new artist.

This issue also brings you an etching by Mimi van der Merwe whose work appeared in the Contrast volume of 1964. And a cartoon of Gus Ferguson’s.

I hope you will enjoy the variations, too, in the age old battle of the genders – ever a hardy perennial in these gardens for these gardeners.

There are a couple of interesting reviews too.
