NOVEMBER IS UPON US! POEM A DAY?

We all know that November is national novel writing month… but for us poets, we feel a little left out. So some of my colleagues and I are going to write a poem every day for the entire month of November… I CHALLENGE YOU.

This is my Emily Dickinson inspired poem. For a project we had to imitate a modernist poet:

1

I look upon the white dust Snow
To find a creature living
But now I see the Death Below
Lurking! Waiting—Receiving!

Winter hands—Nature is taken
Time closes the Season Gate—
Far lost—springtime Life—forsaken!
Arctic grasp—we greet our Fate—
