Back to NaPoWriMo — a poem, Elements

So, this year, I am doing NaPoWriMo again, but with a friend.   We are emailing each other poems each day, often quite late.  But we are writing the poems!  Which is the purpose.  This year, I decided not to publish each poem each day.  However, I am going to publish a few.  And, here is the first – Elements.  

 

Elements                                                    

 

On the day of

Swords

          angles abruptly cancel a convergence of soft petals

 

on the day of

cups

           bowls of frankincense soften the pallor of starlight

 

on the day of

reason

       elevations of glass shards shoot up and obscure the open long field

 

on the day of

feeling  

            overflowing liquids immerse my feet

 

on the day of

disks

            the earth is torched by thieves

 

on the day of

wands

     the suffocation of children is silent and linked to wind moving upon soft                   openings

 

on the day of

wealth

           the green shoots are labeled and monitored as they levitate

 

on the day of

energy

           the algorithm opens the satellite’s interior light
