A ‘Coraline’ poem
'pon shores renowned for rough welter, by unlit lighthouse whiling days, whooping from trees along lush bay, untroubled by glowing swelter... 'til dark morn papa brought grim news that left him mourning all he'd lose- no longer to helter skelter- leave behind easy, breezy ways. chapter two in dark, woodsy lands brought with it astounding surprise; despondent lad rubbed saucer eyes, remembering beloved sands, bedazzled by oddest of sights- surely, the conjuring of sprites; tears welled with joy; up flew small hands- t'wards unknown but welcoming skies.

Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
