Spirit of Eden

by Matt Wilkinson

"I went back down the stairs and out into the garden.
And the ground was all shakin.’ 
And the cherry trees were all movin.’
And the daisies, and the orchids, and the irises.
And everythin’was alive."

The effects of a long buried love affair devastate in a story of an elderly retired farmer, his childless wife and his young carer.
