Hey there everyone.

I’m participating in NaPoWriMo 2020, if you aren’t following the NaPoWriMo website already then go check it out at www.napowrimo.net.

For my poem today, I have written a found inspirational poem inspired by a quirky little poem written by Wallace Stevens, which you can read below.

Read “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird” by Wallace Stevens over at Poetry Foundation

Finally, here is my own inspirational found poem, thank you for reading and good luck with all of your NaPoWriMo adventures throughout this month!

“The Rhythm of the Mind” by David Ellis

Among minds
There are whirled winds
A pantomime
Inflections whistling
Filled with glass
Mood, traced in cause
Imagine golden, inescapable rhythms
The edge of circles of light
Even in fear
Shadow is moving, flying
And going
