Corners in Circles

Feeling drained today, so a short piece for today

Napowrimo 2018, Day 24. I’ve decided to use day 22’s prompt. I’ve found this one rather useful in trying to ‘surprise’ myself into writing something I wouldn’t have come up with otherwise. Today, I’d like you to take one of the following statements of something impossible, and then write a poem in which the impossible thing happens:

The sun can’t rise in the west.

A circle can’t have corners.

Pigs can’t fly.

The clock can’t strike thirteen.

The stars cannot rearrange themselves in the sky.

A mouse can’t eat an elephant.

My poem.

She has a circle of friends and family

Inside she is safe and secure

Even though a circle can’t have corners

She finds corners when she feels alone

The corners are dark and hidden

The others cannot see

That when’s shes trapped in corners

She is desperate to be free
