Last month we invited you to be creative and take part in our competition for tickets for Ed Sheeran's concert in March, with either a poem or an image. This is one of the best poems we received


Once a blank canvas,
But now a brilliant array of colours.
Once happy with its simplicity,
But now unable to remember
How it once was.

shooting out from the bottom.
Rushed in its stroke, but yet
With love and intimacy.

Next, chartreuse
small in the centre, atop the green.
A kiss from the sun
A sense of warmth
From which you’d never want to run.

Surrounding the sun,
Is white snow;
The quieter side of the spectrum.
Silence and comfort
spreading out from the vibrancy.

From the white,
Appears Majorelle.
Four petals in all,
For our vibrancy, intensity,
our rise, and our fall.

The last is a single brush of scarlet,
Dripping near the edge.
What could have been a perfect flower,
Seemed to be destroyed
Only by a single sweep.

Yet, elegance emanated
From such an imperfect thing.
And now,
I cannot remember how things once were
Before I met you.
