A Proper Vessel

This poem is written simply to meet my National Poetry Month challenge. The challenge reads “write a poem with at least four of the following eight words:

  1. flat
  2. ring
  3. lavish
  4. vessel
  5. paper
  6. blacklist
  7. gaudy
  8. tooth”



An empty book
is a proper vessel,

a blank page,
a wrinkled crisp of paper,

to discover the lavishness
of dragons,

their colored scales,
gaudy and light,

their chiseled teeth,
each beast crafted,

molded with the enchanted ink
of a poet’s quill.
