Hubble a Cosmic Cleave

Of the years of being
lost in space.           homeless in a
                         placeless place
only the falling
feeling remains          and all the stars
                         whistling away like jet planes

    *Update 2*

    A clarification from Clare regarding their definition of ‘published’:

    “Published” on the internet is fine unless you have been paid for it.


    There is now a cleave poem section in the competition.

    I will link to your poems from here.

    Thanks to Clare Tanner


    I received a link for a written and performance poetry competition.
