Poetry challenge from Kip Wilson – write a poem that replaces lyrics with a popular or well-known song:

First line borrowed from Mary Oliver’s “The Hermit Crab”
Poem set to the chorus of “Still, Still, Still”


Once I looked inside
All the darkness that you could not hide
I found you fear noises
Saw you shun strangers
Learned you love living
Knew you’d need nurture
Once I reached inside
I found a friend who’ll remain by my side.

-Kim Johnson
