Happy World Poetry Day

Happy World Poetry Day everyone.  Poetry unites us as human beings and today is a great day to be reminded of how wonderful poetry can be.  If you love reading, writing or listening to poetry today is a great opportunity to enjoy verse.  Even if you’re not usually a fan of poetry, take five minutes to have a look at the stuff being shared online today, as there’s bound to be something out there that will change your mind.

Here is my offering for day.  Please let me know if you enjoy it and if you have a favourite poet or poem.

A Single Rose

A single rose survives
Bright red against a barren landscape
The world is
Silent

A single bee flies
Bright yellow against a grey sky
The only sound
Anywhere

A single bee flies
Into a single a rose
Hope survives

There is nothing else
