Creative Writing Ink September 2018 Winner

Happy Birthday

William Lythgoe

 

Birthday,

wedding day,

death day.

Trying to tame

the torrent – to make

the sound and fury

signify something.

 

Gestation,

procreation,

A rainbow arches

to the whirlpool below.

You cannot know

your destination

 

so let the wine flow.

Lose control

and merge

with the one who makes you whole.

Don’t cling to the world

as your life bleeds past

your last birthday

 

but drift

with the stream

that will bear you

again

into

the endless

ocean.
