Na Po Wri Mo – April 2 2023

It’s the second day of National Poetry Writing Month and my offering this time didn’t take long to complete.

The prompt was a nudge towards the surreal which delighted me. It was suggested, like the Romanian-born poet Paul Celan once did, we write a series of surrealist questions and answers and from this, craft a poem.

I loved doing this, sitting in an area of our kitchen I call ‘poetry corner’, with a cuppa, relishing the Spring sunshine streaming in through the patio doors. My resulting poem surprised me.

Take a look here if you are interested in trying this exercise yourself:

Thank you for reading.

Pathway to Love

There is a mysterious cloth 

darned and patched with jute .

Fear in disguise.

Protecting me from the silent 

arrow aimed at my heart.

What if I chose to listen

to the echo from the Universe? 

To discard the armour.

Know the spear already piecing 

my soul is in truth a pointer.

A pathway to Love.
