Bluebells

A becalmed sea, the patient files
of Bluebell Revolutionaries
softly jostle in the nettles,
a flashpoint which, stored beneath
like hope, softly bursts
each year afresh, to remind us
of possibility, renewed urge
and of a final blight-sweet fragrance.

 

 

As well as contributing to Ink Sweat and Tears, Paul Connolly’s poetry has appeared in Agenda, The Warwick Review, Poetry Salzburg, The Reader, Scintilla, and numerous other periodicals. Shortlisted for the Bridport and Charles Causley Prizes, he was third in the Magna Carta Competition.
