Draft of the Week, #13

My computer travails continue, but my laptop’s working for the time being, long enough for me to complete a draft inspired by this week’s ReadWritePoem prompt — an evocative photograph. Per my usual tendencies, I’ve taken their nudge in my own direction. This might be altogether too abstract or wordy or [insert negative adjective here], so feel free to speak up with any thoughts yea or nay — I can take it!

Which is a metaphorically messy paragraph and perhaps does not bode well….

ReadWritePoem has a post today with a few form ideas to help keep the poems flowing, and, as someone who generally doesn’t find prompts helpful, these are great — I will definitely use at least two of them.

Poems have been bubbling up of late, words, phrases — this could be just the impetus I need to get to work.
