Bejewelled

And it will take bigger scales to weigh out the quantities we will need to survive.

Bejewelled in a poem written by Lynn White and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme The Best Bad Idea for the month off January

 

Bejewelled

 

This little piece of gold

will not be enough

to feed the fruit

of my swelling belly.

And it will take bigger scales

to weigh out the quantities

we will need to survive.

But I still have jewels to sell

and I think they will be

enough.

I shall weigh them carefully.

It’s in the balance

but I think there will be

enough.

I live in north Wales. I have been writing at various points in my life since I was in my teens. My work is influenced by issues of social justice and events, places and people I has known or imagined. I am especially interested in exploring the boundaries of dream, fantasy and reality.
