NaPoWriMo 2020 – Day 27 – “Old Magic and New Fury” by David Ellis – A Found Poem Inspired by “A Woman Speaks” by Audre Lorde

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 an incredibly breathtaking poem as my inspiration, written by passionate poet Audre Lorde, who confronted many social injustices in her work.

You can read her poem below.

Read “A Woman Speaks” by Audre Lorde over at Poetry Foundation

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

“Old Magic and New Fury” by David Ellis

Moon marked
Touched by magic
The sea will leave shape
Untouched, unrelenting
Love, permanent
Pride, with pity
Look into restless oceans
Dwell within
Ageless and still seeking
Inside their coiled smile
Old magic and new fury
With wide futures promised
