Prequels, or: Sequels

Poetry Partners #183

‘Wise or Weary’, a tanka by Destiny of ‘Destiny’s Designz’

aimless traveler
destination flamed to ash
thirsts a drop of ease

lessons upon lessons test
wisdom forced upon a mind

A cherita by ben Alexander of โ€˜The Skepticโ€™s Kaddishโ€™

air fills lungs for the first

young father fumbles 
cellphone

joy breaks
old, withered face
into a smile 

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

    In poetry, beautifully combined

        The chosen word succinctly points to the marks of time.
