12 Poets from last week’s challenge of SLEEP and their Décimas. All links open in a new window when clicked on.
Sleep led to many different interpretations this time. I know poetry should be that way, but often with such polarizing times in the world thoughts run along the same paths. This week we branched out from politics to slumber, to some complete nonsense (waving my hand on that last one).
CSNelson | Don’t Forget the Half: Let’s Be Better Humans
The dark snakes in, the dusk is frost,
The wind is fierce, the snow is deep.
My heart pumps slow, a restless sleep,
The covers creased, dreams nightmare-tossed.
We have paid a ferocious cost,
This Covid war, lost dividends,
of joy, of breath, my foes, my friends,
as ‘cross the globe the virus spreads.
Sweet vaccine thoughts invade our heads;
seeking innoculated ends.
