New Awe – National Poetry Month – Day 28

“For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Important (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem. Possible titles could include: “Important Documents,” “Important: Read Before Assembling,” “Important People,” and so on. I hope everyone finds something important to write about today.”

The Importance of Cool Earth Beneath Stone

Watch a child’s face
as he pulls the stone

from its rest,
tips it on its back

like an unfornutate turtle.
There, he sees

what needs be seen,
a world beyond his own:

the legged things,
gangly and afraid,

twisting to recapture
shadow’s cool sanctuary.

His eyes widen,
his jaw drops

beneath the heft
of this new awe.
