The Fundamentals

Today snow light

Lit television-blue emerging

Rising sun struggles awake

Wake up tired

Sleepy in the morning

Dawning, a latent creating

Writing these words

Letters on the page

Notes that bridge

Spanning and expanding

Stretching the mind

Thoughts get recorded

Posterity is fog

Misty but still

Quietly sifting through

Beyond. Pushing

Shoving. It’s a job

Work towards

Journey / the destination



So this is a new poetic form I just invented (maybe?! please tell me if it already exists!) where each new line starts with a synonym of the word at the end of the previous line. We will call it a Claireform poem 🙂
