January 21, 2015



Today’s prompt(s): This is a preliminary attempt to respond to Margo Roby’s Tuesday prompt as well as to The Daily Poet prompt for January 21. Put simply, Margo asked us to write a poem in which we were to pair opposites, either in content or diction. The Daily Poet suggested writing down sensory experiences from today and incorporating some of them into a poem. This haiku is only the beginning of a response to Margo’s prompt, but it does reflect images collected today. In a personal note, today is the first anniversary of my mother’s death.  I wrote haiku every day last January and February and it seems fitting to write one today.

red feathers echo
beating heart underneath
snow falls in silence
