Poetry – Between the tides – John Phillips

Another poem from John Phillips. His poetry book ‘Shorts and Shots’ is out on Amazon.


Between the tides


Between the tides the children play

In sweet oblivion. Today

Their immortality commands

Adventure which inspires demands

To make their mark upon the day.


They walk the narrow tightrope way

Their dreams of innocence portray

Clear visions of a promised land

Between the tides.


To live for now without dismay

To taste life s candy-shop display

Of castles built on shifting sands

Whilst lacking sight to understand

The sharks that circle round the bay

Between the tides.

I'd like to hear from you...
