Are you ready for some more poetry? The answer has to be yes, because it’s National Poetry Month! You should be carrying a poem in your pocket, flitting like a firefly, reading some of your favorite poems everyday, singing and speaking in a poetic flair, you know, the whole bit. It’s truly a fabulous time to celebrate the magic of poems, poets, lyrics and lines.
With that in mind, the prompt on the NaPoWriMo site today suggests that we write a poem about food, but I’ve done that already this week so I created this instead:
a firefly’s dreams sizzle
illuminating the graphite night
then dissolving into invisibility
inspiring further fantasies
returning many times over
to tease the imaginations
of weary vagabonds
restoring them to life
inducing elevated thought
