Written for: Poetic Asides November 2017 Chapbook Challenge – Day 6
Write a praise poem. Praise a person; praise a deity; praise your favorite food. If you ask me, there’s not enough praise to go around in this world.
When life’s hard to abide
sweep stress out with the tide, and sound
of seagulls who abound.
There are shells to be found, pearl pink–
some like indigo ink.
When you are facing brink of gloom
watch waves of ocean bloom
bouquets of white like plume of bird.
You might find you’ve weathered the storm.
