Today’s prompt is to write a poem based on the title of one of the chapters from Susan G. Wooldridge’s poemcrazy: Freeing Your Life with Words. The chapter title I chose was “the poem bridge.”
I love poemcrazy. It is the book that proved to me that I can write poetry. I was so tempted to just pull something I wrote while working through this book and post it here–but that wouldn’t have been in keeping with NaPoWriMo’s spirit.
Crossing the Bridge words written long ago and far away connect with me here and now I feel what the poet felt see what he saw hear what he heard I read and I experience what moved him to tears and I share the sorrow I laugh out loud at verses absurd this person I never met is my kin, my twin I know him as intimately as I know my own heart he revealed me with his words
