I read a book that gutted me

I turned each page immersed

in worlds far away

in sacrifice.

This masterpiece past any piece

of writing I could do.

Now Twitter says,

that author follows you.

My joy is tangled in my grief

that I may be worth

the following!




NaPoWriMo day 5. Skipping the official prompts today.

    Great poem! Today’s prompt was complex in you had to find a poem that spoke to you and then point it in a new direction. And there are so many good poems and poets to choose from.

  2. Jim Stewart Says:

    This reminds me of a line from “A Farewell to Arms”: “Yes. Wouldn’t it be pretty to think so.”
