Other Lives … New poetry by Lyle Bateman

This is my latest poetic attempt. It started with the line “Flipping through the pages of life” and it evolved from there. I hope everyone likes it … as usual, comments are always welcome.

Other Lives
Lyle Bateman 2007

Turning the pages
on distant other lives
colourful threads of story and character
woven into breathing tapestry

prose and poetry
chapter and verse
Fact as fiction
Fiction as fact

Drums beat out a complex rhythm
with increasing intensity
page after page
until we close the cover
