I saw a challenge on dVerse Poets suggesting writing a poem from a list. -http://dversepoets.com/2014/10/23/meeting-the-bar-ive-got-a-little-list/ .
Jules’s shells and Aphrodite’s shrine
– hot sun on a snow capped mountain
tumbling stones from another lifetime
– hymns to beauty
Feathers for drumstick and the
medicine shield as restitution,
hearing the pulsating beat
echoing through dreams
– the fallow deer on the hilltop
eyes like agates, questioning.
– decorated talismans,
totems from the edge of the universe.
