Editors Christopher & Keri – #PoemADayForAYear: 08/04/15. NaPoWriMo Day Eight

And so on to another day, another poem. Two challenges blend seamlessly into one. #PoemADayForAYear and NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write a palinode – a retraction of a statement made in a previous poem. I contradict myself often so this shouldn’t be too hard.

The poem I have chosen is the one I wrote on 14/03/15.


You can walk in the woods

and see trees that have weathered

decades, centuries, survived where none have.

Turn around and the moon rises over a setting

sun, velvet pinks in double-illumination set over

a willow-fringed lake. Take another step

and you are stood on ocean-beaten

fjords,  ink-skies ahead

splashed through with the green of aurora borealis.

A world full of beauty. Nature’s bounty for us to

share. The rarest thing of all – something good

and free.

But, when you consider that a phone case can also be a snow-globe,

who cares? That’s just too pretty.


Today I…

I bought you a small

Lavender plant just to say,

I love that you’re mine.
