Hello everyone!  Hope you are having a good day.  As some of you know, I came back from my road trip to Alberta about a month ago.  Looking back at my photos,  my mind would wander – skipping the long distance, jumping over the fences and just be in that space of silence.  We were also lucky that the entrance fees to our National Parks in Canada this year is free, so that meant easy access and no barriers to enjoy the many lakes, valleys and mountains surrounding the parks.

My prompt today is about border, that line separating two political or geographical areas, especially countries, or the outer part or edge. More than the physical boundaries, there are borders which are invisible, such as an imaginary, social or mental borders. These kind of borders are more challenging to overcome, don’t you agree? Challenge:  To write about border theme and include the word “border” either in your title or poem. An extra challenge would be to write about the invisible border theme e.g. mental borders or imaginary boundaries.   The form and structure is your choice.

If this is your first time to join us, here’s what to do: 

  • Write a poem with border theme in your blog.
  • Enter a link directly to your poem and your name by clicking Mr Linky. There you will find links to other poets, and more will join during the next 48 hours.
  • Read and comment on other poet’s work, we all go here to have our poems read
  • Please link back to dVerse from your site/blog.Comment and participate in our discussion below, if you like.   We are a friendly bunch of poets.
  • Have fun.

See you at the poetry trail. ~Grace~


Beyond sight

lies a veil

a border invisible



beyond border

lies magic

real and colourful



beyond magic

lies insanity

chaos dancing


in sanity

in sane

in carceration


who is in?

who decides?

in human


beyond thought

we are one


As we grow in our consciousness, there will be more compassion and more love, and then the barriers between people, between religions, between nations will begin to fall. Yes, we have to beat down the separateness.
Ram Dass

    wonderful word play here…..really….I think “play” is the wrong word to use for how you’ve creatively used language, words, and parts of words to be words.
    We are one….amen to that!
