PAD – the poetry challenge

So – my online writers’ group does a challenge every February , and I haven’t managed it once in four years. BUT – I have produced some poems.

Today’s prompt was, appropriately enough “Apathetic”, surprisingly easy. Second Lifers, why not sign up to the challenge in Milk Wood?


Life streams away from me.

I don’t know what this existing is,

but nothing works, so

I watch it happening elsewhere.

Such motion, stretching of minds.

I marvel at the skin on other people,

rippling as they run.

Other people.
