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 selected an intriguing poem as my inspiration, written by Adrienne Rich, you can read more about her life story here. You can also read the lyrics to her poem below.
Finally, here is my own inspirational found poem, thank you for reading and good luck with all of your NaPoWriMo adventures throughout this month!
“There is Always a Piece of Light” by David Ellis The edge of the knife blade Having to do this here, alone There is always, close to side, a piece of light And there is the ocean Blue, green and powerful It pumps alone, without force In the deep here, swaying, are purposes, maps Treasures that prevail, something permanent The story itself, evidence of beauty, of assertion This is the place we dive With open eyes, lies a course You are, by courage, the one Carrying myths, in which our names appear
