Day 3 of 28 Days of Unreason

Calling all Poets!  We are working our way through 28 lines of poetry from the works of Jim Harrison.  For the past two years I selected lines specifically from one of his last books, entitled Songs of Unreason. This year, I was gifted a large anthology of Harrison’s poems and decided to dig deeper and add new lines.  Won’t you join us in writing?  We would love to have you share what Harrison’s words inspire!!  Write a poem, be sure to include the credit to Harrison when you post it on your site, and then pingback here.  Several people have had trouble with pingbacks, so if it doesn’t work for you, just include the URL to your post in the comments below.  Give yourself an additional treat and stop back here to read what other’s have written.

 

Day 3

“I feel my failure intensely
as if it were a vital organ”

~ Harrison
from Vows

Update:  Seven poets have joined me in the 28 Days!  Y’all are amazing 🙂

Cheers  ~Jilly

    1. Jim Harrison is best known for his fiction, which I don’t really care for. His most famous is Legends of the Fall, which became a movie, as well. My favorite of his poetry is still his last book, Songs of Unreason.
