Day 28: Poetry

Image result for poetry

Today's prompt is to write a meta-poem i.e. a poem about poetry. I've done this lots of times before, so this is just a random, spontaneous outburst for now. 


Poetry is a salve
a honeycomb hive
hi-jinks jester
quicksilver tongue
a field full of wildflowers
bookmarked memories
trapeze of thoughts
mish-mash of unending 'seem'
a fishing reel into the deep
cartography of the heart
dreaming with the light on
the quiddity
of everything
inventory of living
power and shine
and keeping extravagantly alive.
