|A wind in the door... Kathleen Byron as Sister Ruth in Black Narcissus|
I am thrilled to have a second new poem, "The Last Confession of Sister Ruth", published in The Ekphrastic Review. This persona poem was inspired by the classic Powell/Pressburger film Black Narcissus, about the lust, jealousy and madness among a group of nuns in a remote Himalayan convent. Kathleen Byron's portrayal of mad Sister Ruth is brilliant. Again, many thanks to editor Lorette C. Luzajic for selecting this poem and "Turning", which appeared a few weeks ago.
