Poems of Unreason

Day 17 of 28 Days of Unreason

“Saw a poem float by just beneath the surface” – Jim Harrison


On pretty paper
boats tossed around by the storm
clouds that fill your eyes
swell with violent unshed tears
stain the cusp and fetch poems.

    This is beautiful. The blending of metaphor and the truth, is dynamic.

  2. Lovely stuff Lynn. I like the simple first line “on pretty paper” which seems the key.

    I see this as fishing for poems in those paper boats.

    I read this very early this morning and let it play in my head through the day. The word ‘cusp’ was wonderfully unexpected. Super images!

    You have truly entered into your own inner Harrison mindset. You poems have become slightly more surreal and more insightful with each run-in with these prompts! This was a beautifully concise and brilliant take on the prompt!
