Poem, Poetry

Neil Elder

The theme is …

This is where I duck out;
the moon’s too big for just one person.

Give me a tiny moonstone to write about,
or better still, a moon shaped stone
that fits upon my palm.

Like the stone I took away from the shore
the day I gave an urn of ashes to the sea:
a trade that, like the tide,
keeps returning you to me.

Neil won the Cinnamon Press Debut Collection Prize with The Space Between Us, and he won their pamphlet prize with Codes of Conduct. He is widely published and his latest pamphlet, Like This,  arrives from 4Word Press in August 2021.
