Hey there folks, so happy to see you all again so soon!
For my Day 21 poem for National Poetry Writing Month, I used a poem mentioned over at NaPoWriMo HQ in their Day 21 prompt post as the inspiration for my own found poem.
It is a powerful piece by Federico García Lorca called “City That Does Not Sleep” and you can find the lyrics to it here:-
And now here is my found poem, thank you ever so much for reading and hope you enjoy it.
“The Moon Bites With Spirit” by David Ellis
The moon will come
And bite with spirit
Beneath the tender stars on earth
Who call out to keep life a dream
We fall down
In order to climb to exist
Kisses feel forever
Death will live in the enraged
Will take refuge in another day
Preserved from silent roses
From the thunderstorm of invention
We must carry the hand of the sleeping sky
If there be bitter wounds in this world
During the night, see in the moonlight
The lying and the poison
