Turning Up Emeralds
The world is filled with poetic jewels. Sometimes it takes a while to find them. That's what happened with me and George Seferis, a Greek poet. I stumbled upon him, and feel enchanted by his every word.
Here are a few of his lines...
A little farther
we will see the almond trees blossoming
the marble gleaming in the sun
the sea breaking into waves...
And here is the poem his lines inspired in me...
I remember the scent
and how you crushed them,
their brown skins
turning to dust
scattering like spilled cinnamon.
Poetry Prompt: Next Friday at HighCallingBlogs, we're going to branch out and do another aspect of "Culture" besides poetry. RAP will resume the following week. In the meantime, you might try writing a brief poem based on the lines of someone else's poem.
