Debra Bellon: Star

Debra Bellon’s ongoing poetry blog, No Haikus, is a treat. Excellent way to re-fill your own well. Here is a recent gem:


Another long mile. You breathe;
the air is full of dust, the moon
achingly round.
All the words that once seemed important
are now gone, like the bitter
November leaves.
You yearn for the faraway light
of the nameless star
flickering in the dark sky,
both inviting
and devastatingly vast

Thanks for permission to re-post at Studio Mothers, Debra. More, more, more!

    Thanks, Miranda! My poem a day plan has clearly fallen by the wayside, but I’m aiming for one a week! Though I keep getting myself stuck on different words. I’m finding it to be a good exercise (using the last word as a prompt for the next poem), if anyone is looking for one – and it gets you thinking…do you try to choose the word at the end or do you just see what happens? Hmm….I thought “vast” would be easy but it opens up far too many possibilities!
