Guardian #8thDayChallenge


With eyes closed, I am one
syllable. simple
as the first dawn
scattering a rainbow. a wingspan
just strong enough
to keep you
on my shoulder

There was no prompt for this poem, but I like it for its simple language. Writing with less words makes each one more powerful. Using everyday language in poetry as been a writing goal of mine for several years. What are your writing “edicts”? I’d love to know!
