Today is National Poetry Day in the UK! This year the theme is “water”… You can find out more about National Poetry day via this link…
And here’s a watery moment from me…
It’s not blue
like storybook illustrations
of spray-wet mermaid’s tails.
Aqua Marina’s not here to echo
her siren song soundtracks.
Indefinite seascape escapism.
It’s not blue.
Nor is blueberry yoghurt
or the sky on that last Tuesday
when he promised red things.
Not blue, but stone-swallow deep.
She could drown. Or float free.
