Day 24 – Lest You Die

The closer I get to the end of the 28 Days of Unreason, the closer my writing is to the edge of sanity.  Not me, mind you, just the poet’s voice.  Here is the 24th line from Songs of Unreason and my poem, entitled Lest You Die.

“Nature has portals rather than doors”  ~ Jim Harrison

 

The Forgiving Tree

opens her arms

bids us step through

find sanity in the healing balm

  1. I can’t wait to read a story that includes a Forgiving Tree. J.R.R. and C.S. would approve, I believe… as would Madeleine and Ursula. I love how the poem ends with the repeat!
