Topography Sketches

Topography Sketches was a title I gave to a small collection of poems or observations which were originally published in 1995 in the anthology, Mistaken Identities, edited by James Robertson.

My original idea was to have a written version of the small thumbnail sketches I produce in my sketchbooks when out and about . These observations were often of sights that I wanted to record but not necessarily draw, and the topography sketches were the perfect answer. As with visual my sketches, they would be in a form that was appropriate to what I was trying to communicate, from a one-line poem to a short piece of prose.

As well as the small stones, I’ll be posting occasional written sketches from my notebooks as part of the Wee Stones blog. Hope you enjoy them.
