This is day 12 of Days of Unreason:
“The beauty of the rattlesnake is in its threat.” – Jim Harrison
Hard to keep.
Hill’s too steep.
Corner’s too tight.
A ride of peril.
Creature that’s feral.
Let’s face it,
you don’t get worked up
over nightmares of cuddly puppies.
A little over a year ago, I joined Jillys2016 in a challenge called “28 Days of Unreason.” She culled quotes from the poems of Jim Harrison in a book called Songs of Unreason. We used the quotes as prompts; diving boards suspended over the abyss of poetry. Jill is revisiting unreason, and I am skipping gleefully along. Come and join the fun!
