Poem of the Week: Barriers

I mostly post my poetry first on Instagram, (unless it is a patron-exclusive poem). Then, each Sunday here on the blog, I post the poem that has got the most Insta likes.
If you’re on Instagram, let’s follow each other. You’ll find my account Orna Ross.poetry here.
The poems are inspired by photographs, sometimes taken by me, sometimes by others.

My most popular poem on Instagram this week was, “Barriers”.

And now for this week's poem:


I seek.
As unclear skies
obscure the stars,
and we are held apart
by helmet, suit
and mask,
I seek.
