Octpowrimo Poem #1– Love Letters

 I found a site that threw down another gauntlet at me: OctPoWriMo. That is right, a challenge to create one poem a day for the entire month. Who knows how successful I’ll be, but I’m a glutton for punishment, so we’ll see how it goes.  At  Without further ado, here is my first contribution. As I just found out about the challenge, I’ll end up only one poem short, if I’m lucky…..

words careen across

bare ivory landscapes, their hearts open and

bleeding,

staining yesterday’s path with

ink-hued

remembrance.

  1. I love the way the sparseness of the scene is matched by the space of your words and the overall feel of this piece. I don’t know it I’ll get to all 31 either, but I’m really glad we’re trying. 🙂

  2. Ohmigawsh! I love these lines especially:

    >> staining yesterday’s path with

    >> ink-hued

    >> remembrance.

    I am so glad you are participating in #OctPoWriMo… and while the aim is 31, any amount is a positive increase so…. fine by me! Is it selfish to say I want to see more!?

  3. Ink-hued remembrance…I like that a lot. I’m not always a fan of short poems but this one says everything it needs to…I really enjoyed the imagery. 🙂

  4. Jen, I absolutely love this one. I’ve actually been writing with a deep red ink of late, and so the image of words “open and/bleeding” is incredibly apt.

    So glad you’re joining in on all the fun!
