This is day 23 of Days of Unreason:
“Such fragile wings.” – Jim Harrison
One year she watched
her cousin Jimmy swat
it lay inert on the grass.
She fears the darkening words, mostly.
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!
We are seeking some shade at dVerse Poets Pub tonight.
