We ride distorted monsters
beyond sandcastle borders,
past pebbles and fizzing foam
to whispering eel grass meadows.
Tethered to stalks, their snaking
chameleon tails swish,
graceful gliding curlicues,
neither horse nor fish.
Kim M. Russell, 2017
Grace is our host this Tuesday and is thinking about the news and borders: people coming in or coming out from one country to another, some travelling for leisure or for adventure and some at great sacrifice and consequences for a better life. She says the border may not only be a physical boundary of one town versus the other town, it may also be an invisible one, such as an imaginary, social or mental border.
Grace has shared three poems with the theme of border and challenges us to write some more, including the word in our titles or our poems. An extra challenge is to write about the invisible border theme e.g. mental borders or imaginary boundaries. The form and structure are our choice.
