Day 7: Fortuitous Poem

Image result for feather

Today's prompt is to write a fortuitous poem.... A weird and fun idea this one!

Changing the rules a bit.... And I think I was subconsciously influenced by Ogden Nash and Charles Simic on this one for some reason!

A Daydream of Luck

A spider on the top of the stairs
came to me in a dream,
unravelling its web
with a pearl of a question 
at its centre. 

A piece of glass, on the sea's edge
saw through my heart
to where you disappeared
and the world too; 
down into the deep swell of sorrow. 

A clock, looking for tomorrow,
sighed your name and a pen
wrote down the time
I stopped waiting on you,
as memories melted into gold.

A feather, flew from grace,
landed in a puddle at my feet,  
when the forecast was pain,
but a poem grew
from under my table 

and began everything again.
