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 moving and quite tragic poem as the inspiration for my found inspirational/romantic poem. To me it is very interesting to explore if I can take the subject matter of something that has a deep sadness and melancholy to it and try to get a brand new positive poem out of it.
You can read the poem that I used as my inspiration below.
Finally, here is my own romantic/inspirational found poem, thank you for reading and good luck with all of your NaPoWriMo adventures throughout this month!
“Seeds of Unending Love” by David Ellis Take your influences Childhood wishes Brilliant told histories Seeing horizon shining To transform a moment, planted Discovery widened, glory flashing before our face Ripened, unmade boundaries Between seas and memories Familiar music in minds, shimmering everywhere We begin to know ambition Friends and art, change heart Hope giving strength, against weakness Need and meaning, growing larger Open this, our desire Beginning as seeds of unending love
