The days are pooled, caught narrowly
in pathways with windows
propped between temporarily
can you tell when you have opened?
What do you use as your
Where has your reflection chosen
to reside? inside stars?
When David posted the W3 prompt this morning, where Destiny chose the memento form, which has 64 syllables in its two stanzas, for her prompt, I knew I had the answer for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Birthday prompt–to construct a poem formed out of 65 syllables. I added one syllable between the two stanzas as a bridge, as in a puente–turning it into a memuente.
I’ve also used the dVerse prompt from Merril to include a window in my poem.
This also gave me a chance to show some photos of an accordion book I made for an online class that explored artist books. The instructor was not happy with my first idea, and this was not even close what I saw in my mind at all, but it has grown on me. I took many many photos of it, both open and closed–these are just a few. I do like the accordion format and I hope to explore it more.
Of course you know what my reflection chooses…
Off prompt again for NaPoWriMo.
