My Poem Climbs a Tree (The Day Jobbers Essential Poetry Prompt)

This post was first published in October 2015 and I re-post it at that date. Feel free to use the poetry prompt even though the event is over:

Good morning dear readers and fellow day jobbers!

It’s early morning, and I don’t have to work until 4 pm but woke up anyway. So let me remind you of this week’s poetry challenge:

Let your poem climb a tree.

Can I tempt you to take part? You have time until next Tuesday and I promise I’ll visit your blog if you leave me the link in the comments with your poem.

My plans

I had originally planned to write a poem, print it out hugely and then literally let it climb a tree but the weather has taken its toll. So I go back to another form of visual poetry which comes, of course, from one of my favourite poetry pages on the web: Language is a Virus.

My poem

climb climb
dear little poem
climb climb dear little words.
My faith has soared
in your misty spaces.
My hope found
a home when
all else was gone.
Climb climb little poem.
Climb climb little words.
Find your way out
into this sad world
and grow to new
heights in your wake!
