Unturning – A Poem

I’m very pleased to have been invited to take part in an ‘inspired’ experiment; where one poem inspires another, and on. This is the root poem here. My response is below.




There are no windows

Only rocks

Climbing with aeonic patience

From ages that are proving

Reluctant to die


We stare at the surfaces

Scrawl with bloodied nails

Trying to make sense

Of this iron sky



While the wind speaks

Unheard warnings

Outside the walls

Just a cave

Just a cave


The world is insane and I'm in writing therapy!

  6. Brrrrrrrrr….all this talk of caves and storms is making me cold….
    This is redolent panda, simply redolent…rich in so many ways ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. The Cave..it’s all about the cave though someone did mention Vikings earlier on didn’t they?
    Hmm oh well I did like it but have to go back and re-read the other so I fully get the gist ๐Ÿ™‚

    The second stanza for me is incredibly cinematic. Wonderfully written Panda.

You can tell me anything (yes, even that!)
