Where From?

Na(Glo)PoWriMo Day 2

April 2, 2019

Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that resists closure by ending on a question, inviting the reader to continue the process of reading (and, in some ways, writing) the poem even after the poem ends.

Connected? To whom? Where from?

Bones, necklaces, interred underground

in pyramids, beneath sacred mounds,

surrounded by jungles, desert sands,

how could they relate to any that’s mine?


Thoughts transposed long centuries past

on parchment scrolls by diligent minds

are they distant whispers of sacred roles,

forgotten heritage sealed in amphoras?


And blackbird’s song at dawn, why

does it move me, dewdrops in morning’s

lawn feel kindred to bare soles,

is my body woven of notes and water?


Will I forever flow through time, not

knowing where from nor where to?
