Moon Birds

 

For the first assignment in Poetry 205, we listened as students shared a poem they loved or one that inspired, intrigued or interested them in some way. The assignment was to listen and jot down any word or phrase that struck your ear and then write a poem from the fragments. I had  a list of over a hundred phrases from poems and this is the end result:

 

Moon Birds

 

any gods
who dare to claim the sky

take sorrow
with open throats

leave chalk white arrows
and nothing more
