The lighthouse

Recommended Posts

badger11

As if the membrane is peppered

with spice, it blinks -

 

and through the crust of salt

a blur of light

 

and why lie about hope?

Scout the waves,

 

shadow the spray,

stalk the curve of the bay

 

and find a light-

bulb flickering

 

like the nearly dead

who pray for dust.

I love this, Badge. "Crust of salt" and "stalk the curve of the bay" are terrific. And your use of "membrane" is novel.

 

I wonder if "Lighthouse" would be a better title? Even something less obvious would work.

Cheers Tony. Why don't you post a poem here...not worry about good or bad...just write some...?

I'll try, Badge. Every week I set it as a goal to produce a poem, and every week I fail to accomplish that goal. :blush: (Well, I could make a bad one no problem.) But I'll make it a goal now to post a poem by the end of this weekend. It's a tall order, but if I can pull it off, it would be :-8)! Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement.

A bad poem is better than no poem :0)
