Hey there everyone.
Here we are at Day 20 of National Poetry Writing Month and I’m very excited to share with you another found poem that I’ve just crafted.
Going back through the NaPoWriMo.net prompts, I came across a simply amazing poem for my inspiration by poet Raena Shirali called “DAAYAN AT GOLD STREAK RIVER”, full of rich, evocative imagery that leapt out to me very quickly and captured the muse in my heart.
You can find the lyrics to her poem over here:-
You can also find out more about Raena and buy her books over at her website here:-
And finally, here is my found poem, thank you for reading.
“If We Turn Back” by David Ellis
The river trembles
I trace the ripple
From a distance
Because if our earth again
Tell how the smallness of a living thing
Says we float
And follow the sky
The day dies
If we turn back
