Hello again everyone!
We’re on to Day 2 of National Poetry Writing Month, so with many more days to go this is still the tip of the iceberg but if we all stay cool then we got this 🙂
Today’s prompt over at NaPoWriMo HQ is to end a poem on a question that could potentially lead to someone continuing the poem themselves as a reader or a writer.
Here is the prompt if you too want to give it a shot yourself.
As for my inspiration for my found poem tonight, I have used the “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” by T.S Eliot and you can find the lyrics to this wonderful poem here:-
And now here is my own found poem, hope you all enjoy it.
“Mermaid Sunsets” by David Ellis
Let go when
The evening is certain
Of nights with oyster-like intent
Let go and make room
Into the corners of lingered time
For there will be days that drop a question for you and me
Of a simple universe
In a minute known with music
That rises from lonely seas so peacefully
The strength to have seen worth
Among the porcelain smile from sunsets sprinkled
As if magic will swell
A tool to grow old
Do I dare to think that
Riding the waves when the wind blows
We have lingered in the sea till human?
Wake us and we drown
