This work asks the question, ‘Where is home?’ It discusses the transience of human experience; in contrast with the permanence of the backgrounds on which it occurs. This particular poem is based around the city of Edinburgh, with its old stones and immutable skyline, and the scores of stories and performances that unfold in its streets. This value is important because, in an increasingly unstable age, we as humans try to touch base with ourselves and each other, seek connection, find perspective through the lens of our homes. In order to progress, it’s important to know where we are anchored, even if the anchor moves from time to time. It’s even more important to recognise the role of change and time in our daily lives.
