NaPoWriMo – Day Two

sitting on the dark couch,
waiting for the moon rise,

hoping for a bright thought
sparking new thoughts to rise,

like the half moon still dark
behind fog and gray clouds,

finding these thoughts do rise
because I put words down

with pen and ink on grids
counting for more than math

any bright thought will do
symbol, or yes, symbol,

language, oh yes, such words
as I cannot find now

This poem was written to the bright/dark prompt at Poetic Asides.

  1. Is that why we write? Because it allows to know, even for a few minutes that we are in control? I like the combination of dark and light and the dance between the two.


  2. I like the path along which you lead us. The extended simile of the moonrise works beautifully. My favourite, though, is the speaker’s emotion in the final two lines.


  3. Richard, I grabbed your final line to use as a title for the Cento poem I did for today. Hope that’s okay and thanks for helping me out with my idea,
