This is day 27 of Days of Unreason:
“It is life’s work to recognize the mystery of the obvious.” – Jim Harrison
The moon hangs –
has hung for eons –
over us, plainly…
a metaphor, a simile, a symbol, an icon…
And yet songs are written,
poems are bled,
story lines are strung
from the everyday, run of the mill
We strive and struggle
to understand its sway.
The sun rises and hangs –
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!
