Daily Spitting of the Bose — Let there be Night
Prompted fusion of words with friends
Shadow backdrop filtering moon — flighty air and her foggy bottom
not the soggiest or faintest of ideas — play on words
thick and thin — hell to high waters — out behind daylight
deliver me — into a glistening starry night.
Think again — misfortune placed upon mantles of despair
not for the glory of it — or taking a ride in years
yet time draws nigh — fortnight minimally explaining time
space continuum — Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox.
Letting all go by day — noctambulous delivering nothingness
frivolously — anguish inflicted ancestral hand-me-downs
tattered jeans — flaking from the soul* of his feet
tapping right out — trepid of ague.
Into the night — shadowy moons facing onward
an entity of being — not mistaken identity foretold
restless sleep — working a twenty-four-seven
round the clock — mirrors projecting backward.
Cast out — by the pale blue light
transfigured me — angelic creature gnawing at the bone
of reduction — into nothing, it is returned
daily spitting of the Bose — let there be night.
~ Ani Po
What do you get when you fuse varying prompt ideas?
Maybe a jumble of words, deep thoughts with Jack Handy or just Canvas-filled with hand-sculpted font upon a page. This was an attempt at Taking the phrase “out of thin air/into the shadow,” reworking it in some fashion within the structure of the first stanza. The prompted poem was on any subject chosen, but the first stanza had to have each of those words placed somewhere within it.
Since the subject was “Any subject,” why not choose another prompted topic on “let there be night.” Please leave a comment as to yay or nay on this combo.
Thanks J.D. Harms for these fun prompts and thank you to the whole Scrittura team for the daily Dance with Inspiration. Here the two prompts:
