Best Poem of Ruth Walters

Bones

The toe bone's connected to
lush grass, early mornings, bird song

The heel bone's connected to you,
how you look when you're ahead

The foot bone's connected to determination,
how you keep going when all is crumbling

The leg bone's connected to your fears,
your wobbles, how you need support

The knee bone's connected to your knee jerk
reactions to this crazy world

The thigh bone's connected to your inner strength
that helps you take control

The back-bone's connected to work,
hard work, hard work, sheer hard work

The neck ...

Read the full of Bones

Late

I rose at 6,
showered and dressed,
did my hair,
put on my vest,
threw on some toast,
topped up the pot
whereupon the postman knocked,
the telephone rang
at 9.15
