Double Pantoum

 A light is gone
The end is born
A soul moves on
No time to mourn

The end is born
All choices made
No time to mourn
Just honour paid

All choices made
The crowd rejoice
Just honour paid
In one loud voice

The crowd rejoice
For insight gained
In one loud voice
All is explained

For insight gained
The great reward
All is explained
The self restored

The great reward
A light is gone
The self restored
A soul moves on

Poetry Slam

Tonight I entered a Poetry Slam at my University, and although I didn't win, it was a good experience.
Mostly because I normally get so nervous when doing these things, particularly in public.

I did come back richer by two bottles of wine, and although I don't drink, I am sure I can find some use for them.
The poems I read are the recent ones posted here, and my favourite by Michael Ondaatje- The Time Around Scars.

It was also nice to hear live poetry, which I was surprised to hear that it was mostly things people had written themselves.
I also cannot complain that it was nice and quiet in the union for once.

I hope they do more, and that in future there is a bigger and better turnout, particularly from the writing students!
