A poem inspired by this painting View East from Darby’s Hill, Dudley by Robert Perry.

The Beach
I stand on the shore.
I breathe.
I fling my dreams to the horizon,
Whisper my prayers to the skies,
Let the energies that made me rise up from the pebbles that extend from my feet.

You can read see the poem with the artwork and the other poems inspired by the Metropolis exhibition on the RBSA’s blog here.

At the end of the day, I’m a Brummie

And yet (To the sea)
