Na Po Wri Mo – April 22 2023


The challenge today was to take an Emily Dickinson poem and craft it into something else, adding and subtracting words and altering line breaks. I chose her poem ‘Hope’ and my own feelings about a walk we did today along the white cliffs of Dover.


Delight

is a thing 

with feathers.

It soars above 

the white cliffs 

of Dover where 

buttercups glow.  


Delight 

sings without 

words. 

It rises

like the skylark,

spiralling

higher and higher.


Delight 

is shimmering 

white.

It flows in

with the waves

and settles

in the soul.
