desiring a new place
to set it down
to set me down
could I see my old place
with awakened eyes
with a new story
does needing a fresh start
require a new place
or would a divergent story suffice
Written in a workshop (Exploring Epiphany) led by
John Fox of Poetic Medicine. We were to take inspiration
from a line in Fresh a poem by Naomi Shihab Nye.
I chose the line And set it down in. We had about five
minutes to write a poem.
