POEM A DAY: TIPHANIE YANIQUE
Posted on June 25 2020
‘This is the island It is small and vulnerable’ - Tiphanie Yanique
Today’s daily poem reminded us of the 72nd anniversary of the arrival of Windrush, the diaspora communities from Caribbean islands, as well as serving as a warning for the frailty and danger inherent in our own UK island nation. It comes from our PBS Summer Translation Choice The Sea Needs No Ornament - a bilingual anthology of Contemporary Caribbean women poets. PBS Members can order it here with 25% off.
