A poem in an instant...
Stillness sweeps through the forest,
A silence from all inhabitants,
All life quietens to a whisper,
A quiet crackle grows,
Turn a blind eye.
The unchaining of a free spirit,
An entity with no limits,
Never knowing the boundaries
Too late to turn a blind eye is the winning entry in the junior section of the 2019 Poetry on Loan poetry competition.
