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.
Today I have used a very well know poem from an astoundingly talented poet who I admire enormously as my inspiration. You can read the poem that inspired my piece here, if you haven’t read it before!
Finally, here is my own romantic found poem, thank you for reading and good luck with all of your NaPoWriMo adventures throughout this month!
“Drunk of Paradise” by David Ellis In a dream fragment Pleasure, sacred Miles of fertile ground With walls and gardens Blossomed forests Ancient, sunny greenery That deep, romantic place Enchanted moon, ceaseless As if breathing, dancing Meandering through shadow Floated on waves Mingled miracle of rare vision Singing, within me, symphony Deep delight would build In eyes, honey-fed And drunk of paradise
