1 The constraints: 1) No more than
one hour. 2) No more than 20 lines.
The result ? Genius or Not.


2nd December 2010

By Mark Brayley | 2010 December 02

Never so willingly have I collapsed
into purity.
The distant two tone trees
formed the frosted fringe
of my expanse.  

Voices faded –
those I didn’t want to hear
went first,
frozen memories,
my own melted words,
even yours,
even his as he too
took in dimensions of white.  

Pillowed and cushioned
by a thick tog down
of snow.  

There was nothing else
that mattered
as much
as that clean page.

Silence, Colours, Refuge, Snow
