Random Poem:

To the Lighthouse

Virginia writes.
Writes as she thinks.
Words tumble out;
Covering the page.
Virginia writes.
Writes it all down.
Bloomsbury blue;
Clear Cornish light.
    Stream of consciousness reaches the sea
    Verbiage through herbage
    Down cliffs through rifts
    Carving channels though the sand
    To the water's edge, and ...
    Onward to the island
    to the slim white sentinel
    to the lighthouse:
    Godrevy light.
Virginia writes.
Writes meaningful prose.
Deep as the sea.
Boat leaves the shore...
Virginia writes.
Writes as she goes.
Climbs up the path.
Woolf at the door.
