The promise of Francesca Albini

Francesca Albini - TUBE book
Welcome to Jawspring, the exhibition that is celebrating World Poetry Day on the 21st March by fusing Art and Poetry.

Today's poem comes from the multi-talented Francesca Albini who is a poet, photographer and keen-eyed visual artist. Her philosophy that both humour and beauty are all around us is evident in her published work, TUBE which documents her journeys under London with her mobile phone. Albini's image making includes found images, paper, glue, markers, paint and ingenuity. It is her insightful creative writing (Blog) that has captured my keen eye and so I'm very pleased she has become a sushi laureate with this poem.....

Heavy drops of rain
With a promise of life
Lizards under rocks
