The Fieldstone Review

It's a life like any other

by Nigel Ford

The foot hit the step of shining stone
Far off, a flimsy star lights up the glaze of fright
Old scribe put down the clink in ink
The pen scratched help upon the plight.
Where to go to what surprise
Cold upon the sunrise wait
Creaks and groans throughout the night
When day spurns hungry light.
It’s a life like any other.
