Yesterday was different from today
Why was that
I do not know
The sun shone
It did not snow
To the rapture
Loud hailers
Today is a new day
This do I care
Ships creeked
As the wind blew
Deep within its hull
Lend a hand
As it drifts towards
The sinking sand
Light heartily
Echo rises
With pause
And light surprises
Disbelief is not the answer
Just you wait
From now till midnight

  2. Hi Gayle,
    Truly excited that you like my poem 'THE EDGE'. I believe 'THE EDGE' touches a small part in each and everyone of us. I'm really thrilled to be entering the competition.

    I'm also a published author of a children's book for younger readers called, 'GOING PLACES' It is a nicely illustrated fun book about nature and movement.

    The book helps children understand why we make certain choices in what form of transport we use from day to day. I anticipate great times ahead for 'GOING PLACES'. I hope someday the book will feature in your Bookclub.

  3. Hi Veleta,

    I read your poem,The Edge. Really lovely. x
