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.
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
