I am a Lighthouse.

I'm very proud to present my first guest writer, Oldham poet Lynn Myint-Maung. During a recent poetry workshop, I wrote Doctor Atomic (see previous post). This was in response to the interview I did with Lynn. Lynn then interviewed me about my writing crusade, and from her investigations she produced this fine poem.

Poem for Matt

Like a beacon at sea,
flash, off; flash, off;
Distant and small
But brave and enduring
Big battery, no place for failing
But lonely and yearning.

Then response.

Winking gleam
And another and another
Then a sea full of lights
Gay and triumphant
Flash, off; flash, off.
You believed and kept the faith
Gained joy from an act of will
Caused community from darkness
