For Miz Quickly’s poetry prompts: Day 3
Plus Joseph’s Naming Constellations: Excursion Panning For Gold
And For Margot Roby who gave me a lift, a load of ideas, and some wonderful laughter
“Such Words As I Cannot Find Now”
I come from a place known as history
chased through a labyrinth
Everything feels stripped of nature’s pigment
unspoken words understood
sighing long and low, complaining,
that towheaded giggle
Jake had vanished, swallowed up in a cloud of sand. Gone
it was only a matter of when.

My profuse thanks to each of you!
Notes: I tried, I really tried Miz Q, but all I got was hung up in the photos. Ran off to Facebook to play some Mah-Jong and ran into Margo, who gave me some ideas. Went to see what Joseph was suggesting. A Cento poem. But felt a bit guilty for abandoning you, so made the Cento from a line taken from each of the poems listed on your site so far today. It was rather quite fun.
