Contrast #WritingwithWoolf #NaPoWriMo2020 #NationalPoetryMonth

For National Poetry Month, I am writing poems inspired by words, ideas, and images in Virginia Woolf’s Diary.

The passage I’m working from today: “We drove home very fast. I on the other hand took in favour of Barbara–& wished I had gone up alone with her on to the downs.”

Day #17: Contrast

virginia walks the wet, green downs
gentle sloping hills and valleys
clouds gather, promise rain

i walk the dry, golden prairie
gentle sloping hills and valleys
clouds gather, threaten storm

Kent, England

  1. You are just killing it this month! I know I am always in for a treat when I come here.

    I love what you did here with the contrast. Beautiful!

  2. I love how you found both similarities and differences between the two locations! Thanks for the great poem!
