My poem for day 14 of Paul Brookes’ April poetry challenge. I used all three images, and you can see them here.


There’s a pearl in the ocean,
a sunset on the water,
a ruin on the hillside.

The pearl is as may be,

the sunset will sink
into the arms of the sea,

but the ruin
will blister my eyes

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.
