Check out our new series of poems that will be showcased each week. The first of the series was written by the talented Stephen Michaux.

Once there was a girl
who’d rarely ever spoken
always reading
with her book open.

But one day
she had a lot to say,
“I’ve lost my book,
I’ve looked everywhere but I can’t find it,
it can’t have just vanished into thin air!”

“Have you looked down the side of the chair?”

It was down there.
She pulled it out and sat
and as she was flicking through the pages
she was suddenly stroking a cat
and with each stroke
the words that had been on the pages it spoke!
