Poem#10 – Lummi Island, Washington

Today’s prompt comes from Sage Cohen, and it is in the form of a Mad Lib:


Lummi Island, Washington


Because I am not open to the possibility, I have the skin of a Jackfruit

that has spent its life dancing in the wind. Inside the fibrous pulp of the heart

I am torn and twisted. I cannot tell when the earth has shifted on It’s axis

even with eyes as beautiful as yours.


And when the atoms of the heart have split open like dreams

a gentle breeze will bring the scent into your garden

The yellow yarrows falling on the spinning floor are deceivers

conning each other with their drifting platitudes.


All the summers I have known have been tempered by fog

and the heavy as stone silence crossing the lines at night.

  1. I’ve always admired people who can write this kind of poetry – abstract and intriguing. Nice work.

  2. Excellent work, Jacque. I love the way the words set up reverberations echoed and recalled later on. It’d make a great performance piece.

  3. Thanks for commenting guys, I appreciate it
