Downpour (For Rachel) by Jacob Spivey

Downpour (For Rachel) by Jacob Spivey

The roughest storms

         rock the oceans of  

    my life;

                         I know she

will be there

          to guide,

 with steady hands,

     my wandering,

          voyaging vessel

safely back to land.


Jacob Spivey is a writer based at the University of Leicester. He enjoys writing poetry, memoirs and short stories. In particular, he finds the more mundane things in life, like those things that we take for granted, the most fascinating to write about. He regularly explores little soundbites of inspiration and tries to make sense of them.
