One Poem by Lesley Burt

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Somewhere beyond the rainbow

A horned creature blasts
from the genie’s bottle
dismantled into –

not shadow’s
vague shape made
where shine cannot reach
or its faded former self  –

instead
pure light
reassembled
from split spectrum

to become not quite
its own image –
now that’s the very devil.

 

Lesley Burt has been reading poetry all her life and writing it for a couple of decades. She has been published quite widely in poetry magazines and online.
