Tuesday Poem: 'The Understanding' by Sandra Bell

Thanks to Sandra Bell for giving me permission to reproduce this poem, and to Phantom Billstickers for their wonderful 'Poetry on Posters' initiative.

Sandra was due to read this poem at the Poetry on Posters Phase 6 Global Launch held last Friday night in Christchurch, but, oddly enough, because it mentions a volcano, her flight from Auckland was cancelled because of the volcanic ash cloud and she couldn't make it! The poem was read out at the event by her friend and fellow musician and poet Jay Clarkson who also has a poster in the series.
