2017 Poem a Day Challenge #9

_Kirk_ Poetry, Writing 0 Comments

April is National Poetry Writing Month! The challenge is to write a poem every day of the month. I’m using prompts from the Writer’s Digest Poetic Asides blog.


Write a So ______ poem.


So Lost

In the dark, I imagine deserts;
great orange graves
capable of killing by heat, or dry,
sand, wind, mind-numbing
horizon, cold snap nights
the mirage of hope
and I am there, sliding
through my own footprints
waiting for the right time to fall
beneath the sun
in shutdown and shock,
shaking back to the dark.
