This evening I went to a poetry reading at my library, and I read Day 2's poem, This Poem Does Not Exist, and a favorite of mine by Edna St. Vincent Millay which I will share with you tomorrow. :) I had a wonderful time (there was cheesecake!) and heard a few really great poems! One poem that was read during the evening was a poem by Ezra Pound which I just loved!
And the Days Are not Full Enough
And the days are not full enough
And the nights are not full enough
And life slips by like a field mouse
Not shaking the grass
Anyway, I loved it, it sort of puts things into perspective...
And now here is today's poem:
It starts, a
hairline crack that
runs up and down
but there, an
You push it away
again, and again
until it breaks,
opens up beneath you
and you are falling-
Reality a hungry mouth
ready to swallow you
I just realized these two poems are sort of downers...I'll try to write a happy one tomorrow!
Oh! and tomorrow is 'Poem in your Pocket day'! Carry your favorite poem with you all day and share with friends!
