For NaPoWriMo poetry prompt #8: Day 8
meaning, hurl, rattle, listener, pluck
taut, clenched, music, tender, unique
deepest meanings from everyday moments.
Duck a clenched fist.
Tuck tenderness deep down inside.
Be that lucky listener
sucking in joy of magic
found in unique music.
Shuck taut rattle of constant
misdirection and buck
any establishment that hurls
a truck load of rules
that will keep you stuck
forever, plucked like a chicken
of all of its feathers.
Elizabeth Crawford 4/8/14
Notes: Along with the wordle prompts I have been offering at 1sojournal, I have also posted a few tips each day, suggestions for getting through this madcap month of words and poems. Today’s tip was to pick one of the words and use it for a title. Then sit back and listen to where the word might want to take you. I did that, and found a whole lot of fun and a bit of magic as several of the other tips I had made, and all of the words came along for the ride.
