This poem is linked to Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. I used 3 words that contain the letters “ght.” This post doesn’t look like a stream-of-consciousness, but I wrote this pretty quickly and did not edit it at all.
At DVerse, we are exploring the question as poetry. I was inspired by these questions from Pablo Neruda: “Where can you find a bell that will ring in your dreams?” and, less directly, “Who sings in the deepest water in the abandoned lagoon?”
I walk on cloud, stumbling into pools of moonlight
And lakes of midnight, stars’ eyes
Creating an Argus in the sky —
Watch me in wonder as I wander
a a r
m l d o y
To the banks of our galactic river —
“A land flowing with milk and honey.”
I decided to post this and share it with Real Toads’s “Try Everything” prompt, since I rarely write something this “creatively” formatted. This is basically a stream-of-consciousness poem, written a few days ago, and I’m not quite sure where it came from. What does it mean to you?
