Discover me, hiding between the bookshelves
My trenches from which to peer out at the world.
Discover me, a hardback in front of my face
My shield and protector from prying eyes.
Discover me, writing as fast as the words come to mind
My pen is my sword, I’ll use it to fight.
There just might be more to me than you think.
Hurrah! It’s the monthly fun that is dVerse Open Link, and the bar is open! Beth is tending bar today – she’s new, so be kind, and don’t tut, roll your eyes or indicate any other expressions of impatience as she learns where all the special beers and ales are kept.
This monthly get together has no theme, it is purely for us poets to offer up our creations and revel in all the offerings laid out before us. Why not join in, either be reading and commenting, or even by putting your work on show too? We don’t bite!
My offering is partially inspired by the inner life of a solitary writer, mixed up with influences from recent family history talk and many wonderful photos I was lucky enough to see last weekend, en famille.
