Poem-a-day - April 26


Today's Prompt: Write a poem about "more than 5 times"
Some poets claim
more than 50 rewrites
for a single poem.
I want to dare
to lay a beginning
onto a blank page.
Allow the poem
to unfold on its own.
Not to cling or try
to bend the thing
into a familiar shape.
Not to hoist the sails
to catch the usual
trade wind. But
to let the sails luff -
midstream. To face
into not knowing.
To make space
without expectation,
knowing I'll have
50 more chances
to get it right...
