Day Three – NanoPoblano – Poem/Poetry – “Horizon Without Sky” by David Ellis

Hello muchachorinos!

It’s Day Three of NanoPoblano AKA National Blog Posting Month (but with way more Peppers!) and I’m back with another video for your viewing torture…I mean pleasure!

Check out the Facebook Live performance of my latest poem.


I was inspired to write the poem today by the number three and reading through vast amounts of trigonometry (Yikes! Alert the fun police! This guy is keerazy!)

Here is the prompt that gave me the idea to do this:-

“Horizon Without Sky” by David Ellis

Entirely without symmetry
Constructing random possibilities
Far from ordinary

Rules without reflections
Lost in limitations
Perfect identity crisis

Thoughts without context
Edges of tomorrow
Simple yet complex

Changes without direction
Adopting fragile foundations
Answers remain fathomless

Pleasure without measure
Nothing like excess
Ultimately teaching restraint

Life without knowledge
Unable to survive
Horizon without sky

  1. Rules without reflections
    Lost in limitations
    Perfect identity crisis

    ^^^^ Loved that!
    What came to my mind for some reason was that …sometimes, reflections without limitations, gets us lost too, and creates a crisis. In a way, I feel it makes sense but at the same time, maybe not?
