One Poem by Edward Alport

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Midas

It just takes one touch,
Just one soft fingertip’s brush,
A fleeting glance from
Under your eyelash,
And I turn to gold. Shining,
Bright, but not living.

 

Edward is a lecturer and writer, mostly on business and politics. He often posts twittaku (double haiku in 140 characters) on Twitter, plus the occasional political limerick.
