Pilgramage

Standard

Linger with me,
old winding streets
Rattle my bones,
gray, rain soaked cold

Cobbles and spires
denied the fires
Along the banks
my soul gives thanks

A wayward muse
forgets her ruse
Of you I dream
my sweet release

Clock Tower (the home of Big Ben), London, c.b.w.

Poetry Poll #4

Standard

Thanks so much to my readers for making the first three rounds of the Poetry Poll a success. Your participation has made this process a fun and enlightening experience.

The fourth and final round of initial voting is here and ready to go with the last batch of poems. Once again, my wonderful readers will decide which one deserves to move on to the final round.  Your vote truly does matter as poll results will determine which three poems I will submit to  Wordrunner eChapbooks, (in response to their call for poetry that relates to the theme of “found”).

All polls will remain open until Poll #5 is posted with the finalists.  This is a numbers game, so the poems with the most votes overall across all polls will make it to the final four.  Follow me on Twitter or my page on Facebook, (see  sidebar) for daily updates on poll numbers.
