01.03.2019 Last winter’s haws.
In The Haw Lantern 1987 Seamus Heaney these berries Diogenes’ lanterns: ‘so that you end up scrutinised from behind the haw....’
‘and you flinch before its bonded pith and stone,
its blood-prick that you wish would test and clear you,
its pecked-at ripeness that scans you, then moves on’.
End of February. This year last year.
