Beyond the Confines

Posted on Oct 3, 2013


*National poetry day today and @CanalRiverTrust on Twitter had the theme of ‘Water, water, everywhere’ so this is my contribution to it. Hope that you like it.

Apsley Lock, Hemel Hempstead, Herts

Apsley Lock, Hemel Hempstead, Herts taken by the author Darren Greenidge

She sits in her harbour
sleeping in a wonderland of dreams
Seeing more than her confines
looking beyond and out to sea

But here she sits imprisoned
rotting away unloved
Rarely going that far
never meeting new blood

Water, water, everywhere
but there she stays sadly moored
Anchored to the waters bed
that keeps her to Jones’ grip evermore
