Poem a Day – 28 – A Mode(rni)st Little Number

I’ve committed to writing a poem a day for the month of April as part of National Poetry Writing Month.

28th April

A modernist piece, inspired by a fragment of a song I heard on the radio this morning. No idea what it means. Perhaps you can tell me.

Strands

Hear

the ebb and flow

a thousand lonely

 

Watch

how restless

drift in the tide

 

Heed

the crash

rip of spirit

 

Feel

the undertow

grieving souls

 

Trust

the surge

new life

  1. wow, to my mind it’s an oceanic take on the human drama. I like it a lot, so much that I think I might write it out and stick it to my fridge with a smiley magnet. Good one, Mike, you are nearly there, only two to go!

Please tell me what you think?
