One of the things on my 101/1001 list was to write at least one poem a week. I haven't written any poetry in a long time so I decided I needed a little help. I got a refrigerator-magnet-esque program for my iphone called Poetik and wrote my first poem yesterday.
Here it is:
Her Triumphant Health
disease hunted her
strained us til withering.
forgoing my compass to fly into proof in the Utmost.
we praised when all still not well-
a novel meditation
to describe love's debtor.
and how my terms are not His.
that Love's remedy can be maddening
but winter grace-fully vanished
into our borrowed treasure.
