Guest Writer Spot

Welcome to my weekly Guest Writer Spot. If you’d like to see your work in this slot, please contact me here or by e-mail: esthernewton@virginmedia.com. I accept stories, poems, articles – in fact, anything and everything. All you have to do is make sure your prose is no longer than 2000 words and your poems no more than 40 lines.

My guest writer, Polly Timmens, has written poems since the grand old age of five. She works long hours for a big company and she says writing poetry is very therapeutic after a hard day. Here’s her poem:

Sacred Garden

By

Polly Timmens

 

She watches the morning unfold,

A beautiful woman with a head of gold.

Sweet, sweet music reaches her ears,

Her sparkling eyes brim over with unshed tears.

She walks through her garden, so sad,

Birds serenade her and her heart is glad.

Blossom bounces to earth, no sound.

And baby buds burst their way up through the ground.

Sun shines, joining in the new day,

Lighting leaves on the dancing trees with each ray.

She pauses, stroking the statue,

Her silky hands shiver with the morning dew.

Goodbye my love, my garden dear,

She sighs, a last look. She knows her time is near.

She thanks God for her brief return,

Though her sacred garden she will always yearn.
