Narcissus, Magnetic Poetry, NaPoWriMo, Day 21

Wind whispers sweet-tongued symphony,

soars, and lighting forest

(so not his friend, the goddess)

driving from above, his life,

as if in a dream, at this lake

showing you there.

You worship you

are gorgeous,

cool–

and you delirious—

See this he? Please love me,

swim,

I ache–

But no, death rose,

too late—the lie—

it is me.

We know how the Magnetic Poetry Oracle loves her myths, and she gave me a poem that fits (I added just a bit of editing) the NaPoWriMo prompt to write about Narcissus. 

We know the story could apply to many. 😉

  1. We had the same idea! I wasn’t going to do this prompt, then the first line I got from the Oracle said—Narcissus. Yours is much more complex. She really went to town with this one!

  2. What a great response the Oracle gave you! And the painting is perfect.
    I’m just first sitting down in my office…I’m not sure where or what I’ll get done today. It’s 4pm already! Oh well. (K)
