So what has happened to my Blog Elul poetry, you ask? I’ve been writing, but the poems have been either too drafty (rough, unfinished) or too personal to post. That’s a good thing, though, because it means I have material to work with later, when I don’t have a daily prompt to inspire me.
I spent a couple hours with a friend at the library today, and I can never resist the urge to make poetry out of book titles. So here’s something I cobbled together using words that jumped out at me from the stacks.
to whisper her name all day and a night
unbroken against the tide
white hot light of the world long gone
a life of joy in a heartbeat
burning once upon a river
too late to say goodbye
guilt by association
hidden places never far from home
