I’ve missed a few days of Eliot of Along the Interstice’s November Shadorma Challenge.
(So many challenges, so little time!) 🙂
To make up for it, the Oracle gave me a few stanzas. I only noticed after I started typing out the poem that she had inserted an extra verse, and since I don’t want to cross her, I put it in parentheses. You can see that I was running out of space on the screen.
Today is Veterans Day in the U.S.
see dark smoke
but picture star-dazzled nights
in perfume breezes
blush of joy.
Go give up ferocious gods,
let poetry fly.
(Time must sail)
then we this window need use
and bring the word home
