Robert GreigMY LIFE AS A PIECE OF STRING

Robert says of himself… “of unknown renown… a photographer, writer, blogger, poet (‘ish), graphic designer, photojournalist, otterologist, soundonomist, tea addict, coffee connoisseur (!), cork-collector, anthropologist, birder, music addict, progger, wildlifer……… often found listening to the shipping forecast with a fresh pot of tea or cafetiere of coffee, pen in hand, camera close by, an eye on the world trying to keep up……. or not…..”

Outstanding in all he does, this is an unforgettable poem…

First Beat

body and soul

both often feel

cold like they’ve

been worn and

taken its toll;

more than a little

frayed to the bone

dog-eared a discard

in need of a home.

sometimes it just fits

without and within but

mostly it’s held by the

skin of its skin;

body and soul two for

the price is cheaper by

half the slower the dive.

ring a-ring the roses are

red make one false move

and wind up dead;

to touch and to feel to

worry each day if this is

my last before I decay.

carved from a bone born

at the start I strain to

recall the first beat of my

heart.
