NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 28 – “Failures Dispossessed” – A Found Poem Inspired by “So Many” by John Pluecker

Hey there everyone.

I’m back again for the second time tonight, aren’t you all lucky people! 🙂

For my Day 28 entry of National Poetry Writing Month, I have time travelled back a couple of days to a previous NaPoWriMo HQ prompt and found inspiration from a poem written by John Pluecker called “So Many”.

John’s poem has a wonderful way of immersing you in with its swirling repetition, using the phrase “so many” multiple times to express itself in a myriad of ways and you can find the lyrics to it here:-

And now here is my found poem, thank you for reading and hope you enjoy it.

“Failures Dispossessed” by David Ellis


Mornings house spaces wide open

A home where people live

Feeling springtime as the sun peeks through

Joy, so early

Listening to what used to be there

Memory marked deep

Sighs, moments of silence

Failures dispossessed, forced out of quiet stares

Love making people come to the city and pine

Sadness let go and misunderstandings demolished

Many lay in wait in the early morning

So people undone

Lost in the tumble
