Example below. First poem in the book.
Dawn rising, Bridge approaching, glorious silence
in the early morning mist.
Dream riding, spirits lifting,
as the River winds below.
Sky winging, heavenly moments,
a bird’s eye view whilst the City slides away.
distant dogs barking basket muttering
to the wires shift and strain
Time for landing breath holding,
as the field comes into view.
Now descending, ground approaching, jolt and tipping, knuckles whitening
World Book Day today 2nd March. My book Robin and Worrall even being enjoyed by young American schoolchildren.
