Today I’m playing along with Laura Purdie Salas’s National Poetry Month Project. Each day, she picks a different card from a board game to guide her topic and writes a poem from an array of magnetic poetry words. Visit Laura’s blog to see the topic and words I worked from.
I’m a collector of quirky deer art, especially the kind you find at the thrift store for ten bucks. Literally, in this case. My family thought I was joking when I rushed to grab this fabric print that was leaning, overlooked, against a back wall at Good Will. Is it art? That’s one of our longstanding family debates. But now that it’s the subject of an ekphrastic poem, I think its artistic status is finally secure.
fear is her treasure
electric alarm &
she is up, around, across
she surges, dances, soars
her fear the music she lives by
For my National Poetry Project, I’m playing along with the poetry calendar created by Margaret and Molly.
