Primeval Discovery

Written for:  Poetic Asides 2019 PAD November Chapbook Challenge – Day 11
Write a prime poem.  Prime is one of those words I don’t often think about, even though it shows up frequently: prime numbers, prime location, prime rib, prime time, Optimus Prime, Amazon Prime, and prime meridian to name a few. So I hope you’re primed up to write a new poem focused on this prime word.

how it would
feel to see land
laid pristine before
you–a virgin forest.
Trees, ground, grasses–verdant, fresh.
Would miracle of this splendor
thrill you, fill you with surrealism?
Could you look, marvel, and leave it unspoiled?

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
