Flat Earth

Loner dares to set his eyes
out there somewhere
vast,
lifting his head
only occasionally,
always making excuses –
one day he would venture,
one day soon.

but maybe he’d kick back
for now and think a bit more,
reasoning that
everything looked much the same
as it did yesterday,
so maybe everything
past that ledge in the distance
was probably much the same
as it was yesterday,

it certainly looked that way
from where he stood and thought –
about the long, dusty, straight, flat road
outside of the field
which led all the way to that ledge –
it was huge,
‘what could be down there?

Maybe I’ll kick back for now
and ponder my new horizons –
then I will be ready,
tomorrow…

maybe.’

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.

  1. Great piece as always.
    Great how they question what lies beyond but put it off, because if they dont know about it, it can never change.
    More awesome the more I think about it. Applicable to so many life situations, ideologies etc
    A subtly mesmerising poem.

    1. I saw the pic this morning and started writing, it went from cute to the discussion we’d had about those flat earth believers, and they get to me lol. But yeah, you called them spot on. Thank you for reading.
