Writing, reading, and commenting fatigue lingers from the April poem-fest.
So, straight to this month's Get Listed prompt.
I have winnowed the list from the (translated) poems of Pablo Neruda, specifically, from the bilingual edition Pablo Neruda - Selected Poems (Houghton Mifflin, 1970).
As a reminder, please write a new poem for this prompt using at least 3 of the list words (or reasonable variants), post it to your own site, and link to that specific poem (not just your blog) in Mr. Linky, below.
from "Poet's Obligation", page 429 (links to full poem at PoemHunter.com):
fragment, insistent, withdrawing, sea
from "They Come for the Islands (1493)", page 195 (links to full poem at Google Books):
clay, gnawed, empty, knife
from "I'm Explaining a Few Things", page 151 (PoemHunter.com again):
suburb, face, house, blood
The prompt will remain open so please frequently revisit your fellow writers - and it's good form to comment on their pens, if you would have them visit and read yours. Thanks for participating.
