“I chose to set Nadine Tunasi’s beautiful poem My hands because of its directness and understated power. I wanted to reflect her words in the same way as the image of the glove and plant printed alongside them – strength in the face of displacement and adversity. I found it in a selection of poems created as part of the writing group ‘Write to Life’.”
