Inner/Outer Images

I’ve been reading Kyle Vaughn’s Lightning Paths: 75 Poetry Writing Exercises, (available on Amazon, linked on title or here on NCTE), which inspired me to delve into another book study of poetry forms and responses. I’ll be making my way through the exercises and prompts between now and the end of the year.

Today’s inspiration is to depict your inner self with images that depict the states of mind or heart.

Missing Mom

Hawk on a wire
checking on my seat belt
fastened tight

Feeder birds at the window
assuring me 
things will be okay

Dogs asleep in my lap
reminding me to 
offer peace, comfort
