Deliberately Returning to Unreason with Harrison
Last spring I read Songs of Unreason by Jim Harrison. The collection was a compelling read; so much so, that I went back through it and culled 28 lines as personal writing prompts. Looking back, I realize it was one of the most fruitful times of poetry writing for me, and also one of the most satisfying. While choosing NOT to read any of the poems I wrote in those days, I am returning to the 28 lines with a fresh eye. (Hopefully, 14 months is enough time for me to forget what I wrote before.) Knowing that the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry (Burns), I plan to write and post daily for the next 28 days. If you find a line worthy of a writing spark, feel free to join me!
