The Umbrella of Invisibility

You put it up
and before you know it,
you completely disappear,
as if by magic, just as though
you were never here.

You close it down
and in a twinkle,
there you are again.
Good to see you back in view,
hope it doesn’t rain!

About the Writer

Graham Seal

Once upon a time Graham Seal won the high school poetry prize – probably because he had more poems in the school magazine than anyone else. Since then he’s continued writing books, articles, songs and poems, many published, many yet to be.
