Is there Romance in Ruin?
published 2013 ISBN 978-0-9562184-3-8 80 pages
“ in that indefinite, delicately hesitant moment
between architecture and archaeology
time allows the shifting shadows to dance
a final chance
that fading walls might recuperate, revive and bloom
and sing to a new tune
a cheerful song
of romance in ruin”
Through new timeless poetry, photography and verse, Donnie Mackay’s new book is a gentle exploration of the relationships, dialogues and empathies between romance and ruin.
