We’re delighted to introduce our first ever The Joy Club writers’ showcase. Our members have been discovering their literary voices and crafting some brilliant poetry and stories. We have been awed by the talent and variety of work produced and feel it would be a huge shame to keep it behind doors! That’s why we’ve collated a selection of our members’ writing to share with you… The second piece from our writers’ showcase is by our member Joyce and is called ‘New dawn’.
New dawn (Joyce Skinn)
The stage is set
The unveiling of the sunrise
Revealing all the glory
Of a sky on fire
My heart is warmed, rising in hope
As the curtain rises with the sun
I sip through the unfolding scene
A steaming cup of Earl Grey
Warms my hands
I’m dazzled by the beauty
The radiance of a new dawn
Breaks into my room
Ushering in the day
Sharp pure white light
Across waiting walls
Blank canvas as yet undrawn
Candy floss clouds drift seawards
Undisturbed by the blinding light
My eyes gaze heavenwards
