House Hunting (April 18, 2013)

April 18, 2013 § 1 Comment

In the Jewish culture, the number 36 is significant: twice 18, which is the numeric value of chai. When today’s prompt asked us to use the same word for the beginning and the end of a poem, I wanted something random. I took the 36th word on the 36th page of my closest book (nothing 36ish about the book, The Group), and used it. Yes, if you look closely I cheated and put ‘my’ in front of the first word, but I used the same phrase at the beginning and the end.


House Hunting

My room calls for me — beyond the sky,
surrounded by spinning orbs and freckled stars.
Watch me float, dizzy with fear and joy.
Send Bradbury to hold my hand
or have a majestic angel purse his lips
and drive me even farther.
Please let me find in space my room.

    Very nicely stated…a place of belonging…a sense of belonging is tantamount to inner peace :+) and as always, thanks for sharing!
