inky streak of cloud
in peripheral vision
raindrop of a thought
Kim M. Russell, 2018
My response to Poets United Midweek Motif: Beginnings
Susan has given us a whole range of images, saying and poems to help us ponder the question of ‘how to begin’, which she says has generated books upon books in every game and every field, and the answers are still not exhausted.
Our Challenge is to write a new poem which traces a thing, event, or action back to its true or imagined beginnings.
