We walk in the sun

A serpent’s tail poem for the Secret Keeper’s prompt using the words

SUN | BOOK | ACT | STAND | WAR

 

We walk in the sun,

done the night,

light falls where we stand,

hand of mine in yours.

Flaws we have both,

loath to change;

strangers we were then,

when life was a play.

Stay with me,

be peace when we fight,

write your name in our book,

look only at the sky. Free,

we walk in the sun.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. Love the tone of this poem. Feels like it could just as easily have been written centuries ago but it’s still warm.
