Poetics: Songs of Unreason (d’Verse Poets Pub)

“He went to sea in a thimble of poetry.”- Poet Warning, Jim Harrison

He went to sea in a thimble of poetry,
knotted loosely to words,
strung along the thin web,
laid out above the waters.

The vessel fills as words
engulf his mind and mist rises
to keep the chamber empty
ready to fill once more.

And as the tides roll and recede
he clings to the line
and stays afloat
until his mind weaves words
sending him back to shore.

  1. Really beautiful writing Christine! I like how you develop this metaphor.. and my favorite lines are:
    “The vessel fills as words
    engulf his mind and mist rises
    to keep the chamber empty
    ready to fill once more.”
    Such a perfect description when we set sail to write a new poem:)
