Day 18 – Fusion

Songs of Unreason by Jim Harrison is the source for 28 Days of Unreason.  28 astounding lines of poetry become writing prompts.  Here is today’s line by Harrsion and my response entitled Fusion.

“We were born to be moving water not ice”  ~ Jim Harrison

FUSION

When the blue is missing
I ask my cold
February self
for a map to
July
that I

I

might speed up
the molecules
thawing
returning to the
blue back-
floating
swallowing the sky
whole

  1. Yup, it’s all about that backfloat staring up at the sky. But were the Midwest winters so cold growing up that even years later, you are frozen in Florida? Rhetorical question alert. I’ve been to MN in February. That all said, the poem is nice, smooth, easy on the reader, yet takes us along for some molecular excitement!

    1. I hear that MN in February is brutal. I grew up in the land of lake-effect snow and really should write a poem about that one night when the blizzard caught the screen door and took me for a ride. 🙂
