A POEM A DAY - CAST IN IRON



This manhole cover was one of a number topping hidden water pipes in the campo near the river bed. Each cast iron cover had different patterns, part of a rich history of decoration visible on municipal iron elements around the village. This one reminded me of people at prayer. In a region blighted by drought and flood it is as well to pray to the water Gods.
