#VerseLove April 26

Our host today for Day 26 of #VerseLove is Donnetta Norris of Arlington, Texas, who inspires us to write borrowed line poems. You can read her full prompt and the poetry of others here. Today, I’m choosing a line from Mary Oliver’s The Gift: that held only the eventual, inevitable and dropping the word eventual.

Family Bible

I close the worn book  
haunting family secrets
manifesting truths

that hold only the
inevitable shocking
revelations: pasts
