I lay down (A Poetry Writing Competition Entry)

A Poetry Writing Competition Entry


1. I lay down

I lay down

on the cool brown mud

and the damp green grass

and I felt the wind with its eyes of silver

buffet over me in little friendly waves.

Each wave an impact, but a nice one.

When I got up, I looked for my family.

They were there on the path

in the distance

but I knew if they got too far ahead

they’d wait for me

and they did.

The seagulls had their elastic paths

stretching across the silk sea to whatever

it is that draws them like a lodestone,

and I had my family.
