Longlisted Poem 2015
Weald of Kent Grammar School, Tonbridge, Kent
The Nun’s awakening
Swirling; subtle particles suspended
Dancing to an unsung melody
They travel silently by
Illuminated by the slice of haze,
That seeps through a stone pore.
Stirring; drawn into consciousness,
Fabricated realities slipping slowly
Out of reach.
Soft haze catalysing reactions,
Of that twitching weary eye.
Barely furnished, a chair laden with
Monotone robes decorates a cell.
Glowing and radiating light casts
Shadows over well fumbled beads.
Gently exhaling air; the sign of life.
Trembling an absent hand stretches
Toward the unknown blinding light.
The specks in the haze guiding her
Vision, enlightening her belief…
Now please, see what I see
