<center><b>The Midday Sun</b></center>

<center>The seagull splits the sky
with a cry like sea spray
washing away the morning.
Below the city thrums -
feet beat the street
as mobile phones drone,
and the midday sun
heats the cobblestones.</center>

<center>Worker bees swarm
on the honey of ideas,
chisel stone from concept,
building towers year after year.

<b>What is Cascade Poetry?</b>

A cascade poem is my own invention. This style of poetry consists of a group of standalone poems that link together to create a larger picture. Each poem should encompass a solid idea, group of images and theme... but when put together form a journey. Today is part four, the fourth poem in the series that will eventually form a longer piece. If you would like to check out previous poems, to see how the overall impression is growing, please follow the links below.

For six days, I will be publishing a poem each day. With the final day linking all the poems together, and also making a video poetry reading. As with my poetry please series (check out links below), this short film will be more than just me reading the poem in front of a camera. Instead I will attempt to find video footage to compliment the poem, express its imagery/themes and set it to music.

I don't want to include any analysis with any of the poems, although I may include a brief discussion on the form and ideas in the final post. This form of poetry is meant to be like an unfolding tapestry, as each day passes the bigger picture is revealed. 

Can you guess what this poem alludes too? There are some clues within the verses. Let me know in the comments 🙂

<b>Thanks for reading.</b>

Hi jayna 👋🙂

Thanks for the feedback, it means a lot to know people are reading these. 

I thought it was an interesting idea and experiment with form. The final post with the video reading is gonna be a special one, published on Tuesday.

I'm gonna do a serious edit on the larger poem to try and make it perfect for submitting to Rattle poetry journal 🙂
