Today in this 21st Century

Today I pull up the drawbridge
My domain
My castle
None may enter
Today I go to the mountain
My niche
My cave
None may find me
Today I commune with nature
My forest
My seashore
None may follow
Today I bid adieu for a while
My freedom
My retreat
None may know.

Dean Fraser is a bestselling UK poet and widely syndicated community broadcaster. Dubbed The Quantum Poet, he spent a number of years touring extensively, learning both his crafts in front of live audiences, coming to understand just what makes an effective poem or presented work. Much more about Dean, his publications and broadcasting, can be found at Dean Fraser Central.

Readers’ original and unpublished poems of up to 40 lines can be emailed, with postal address, to poetscorner@solsticemedia.com.au. Submissions should be in the body of the email, not as attachments. A poetry book will be awarded to each accepted contributor.
