"Write On" Giveaway- First Entry

Hi guys,

The first entry in my giveaway contest comes from Jon. His blog, 'Past and Future Tense' is an interesting read; I find it very introspective and recommend you check it out.

He wrote,

"...It is but a short poem but one that I don't mind sharing, though I make no claims on the accuracy of my style! It isn't as personal as maybe it sounds (and therefore I don't mind its use, if you wish!), though I have to admit the ambiguity was something I was hoping for.

All the best,
Jon "


To what the man should say
To what he thinks he should do
The shadow falls, the darkness comes
News sweeps in on the wires
He wonders what next will come
Where the dice will fall
Malevolently oozing it closes in
The dawn lies far away, the break out of reach
Maybe he'll leave untouched
Maybe the events will come home to roost
What will happen? Who would know?
What could happen? Who could know?
What damage has been done?
What damage is still to come?

Jon, thanks for your submission.



  1. Wow that's a pretty good poem...poetry is not one of my strong suits. I will probably be submitting a short story.

  2. I look forward to reading it Jen. I'm kind of the opposite; I love writing poetry but haven't written a short story in ages. I was thinking the other night that I should give it a shot.
