This week we were given the following prompt:
Choose a book that calls to you.
Go to the end of several chapters, and find the final noun or verb.
Make a list of 10 or so words, and then write a 10- to 20-line poem using those words.
Maybe the feeling or tone of your poem will come from your emotional connection to the book you choose. Maybe not.
I chose a fellow bloggers book "Real Magic" written by Brian Fowler. He sent me a signed copy of his first book that arrived right after I moved in. I thoroughly enjoyed it! It came at a time of change for me and its amazing love story inspired this poem.
New beginnings come, reluctantly
like fall giving in to winters claim.
Winds sweeping away the dead of
fall, a shifting of life, a new day.
We have started anew, joyously
as our dreams drift like snowflakes
filling the trees with possibilities.
Blanketing us in quiet solitude.
The magic of Spring will come
whispering through the pines.
Rooted deeply in love, growth
emerges stronger in change.
