Today for Wednesday Afternoon Writers we were NOT to use the letter chosen, whether it be from the book or our first initial, in any words in our writing today.
I randomly chose #3 which gave me the letter “i”.
So, NOT using the letter “i” anywhere in my piece and starting with the prompt “Why…”, here is the poem I wrote:
Why does the snow crave to grow
back up to the sky when
the snow just fell from the heavens?
One flake on top of another swells,
just to be devoured by the sun’s warm rays,
never to complete the return.
Why does the water from the melt
wash away to the sea
along the Platte’s lengthy arms?
One drop and then another,
a watercourse of snowflake tears,
to overflow Oceanus’ vessel of pleasure.
