One way of relating to the environment is to understand it as a relationship between what a person sees and what a person hears...My recent poem “Barbados Night” started with the close observation of the way that the waves break at Batts Rock Beach day and night. This led me to think of the nearby urban features of Bridgetown as I sat in a cafĂ© there one evening. What was I seeing? What sounds could I hear from where I sat? What were other people doing in the town at that moment?
