Stockport WoL Collage Poem: Shades

entry picture


Shades of wooden nowheres lead to light

Have you got a light

I need light


Instead of six lagers for breakfast

I had a piece of toast


Blood, hope, words can bring peace


In transition a panting breath

birth, life, death - always struggle, always joy

and always always words


Overrated Morrissey sprawls 

on sun-splashed lawns

weaving goodbye laced in

lashes of Belloc and Nash


Oh! For a gentle tone

Much like a sparkling waterfall - 

fragrant, sweet flowers as confetti.

Write Out Words

Collage cascade of confetti
Sparkling words weaves light
Sun-splashed gentle tones
Shades no longer hidden.
