  • Writer's pictureBenjamin Parker


Life is tenuous, beautiful and brittle, 

yet never cowers in the presence of death. 

It lives within chaos and substance; 

the harrowing and the harmony. 

Life will not bend to material needs,

parading in the graceful unknown.

For once death returns 

with his shifting right hand, 

life will amuse his persistence, 

making years and sweet memories

from the seconds in play. 


Benjamin Parker is a poet based in North Wales with works published in publications such as The Uncoiled, The Purposeful Mayonnaise, and Nawr Mag.
