Frank Prem Poetry

Well it’s the beginning of the month and Diana peach, over at Myths of the Mirror blog has posted another speculative fiction style prompt for us to have a play with.

This month’s prompt and all the various responses will be found here.

Meanwhile, my attempt is below. 

Thank you, Diana

take me (to the moon)

I’m walking


take me to
the moon

today I am walking
moon wash me
wash me
wash me
I am coming
to you

what you were
what you thought
you were
is nothing

what you thought
is as nothing
to me


there’s a
star-clipse above me
to hold that sunlight

(to shine black)

star eclipse
above me
to give these buildings
every thing
they lack

this city is
an illusion

am just a

I am just
a sillhouette

    It is especially fine feedback, given that English is not your first language.

    I am delighted.
