The Wilderness / Silence

As a constraint and an adventure I thought it would be a good idea to revisit the poems that I wrote for the "A Poem A Day In April" challenge and respond to each one .  I will take an idea, phrase, word or picture from these poems and create a new perspective. I am looking forward to finding different ways to inspire fresh creativity. I will always leave the original poem on the same page of my blog so you can see if you can work out what I might have been thinking.

So, the first.....     6th Dec

The Wilderness

Busy, loud,  lives distract,
Hide empty spaces,
Where silence batters senses.
In that wilderness,
That desert,
Fearful ,
Off balance,
You meet the now.

And the one I wrote in April:

Day 1:  1st April, 1st poem.
My first poem for the challenge " A Poem a Day in April."

 Being Holy Week these few lines formed themselves:


Life -dark -red
drips from
gaping wounds,
drips from
Skin-slashed and torn.
Bent ,
unable to keep upright
Yet with peace,
Peace  beyond knowing
He is silent

Looking forward to getting on with the next one.

  1. Well, this little poem was the beginning. The 1st April. So many words have appeared on the page since then. I remember thinking that I probably wouldn't finish the month and now I have only three days left. Amazing....
