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
