I am drunk on sky
sipping too deep the twilight
& swimming an ocean
not of water and salt
to drown now would be
to meet a heaven
I already know
***All Bruce’s fault
Thanks! I love it when a poem jumps out of my skull, already formed. ;)
Oh, really liking this as a counter point
Thanks, Bruce–it just
rolled out of my fingertips, as quickly as I typed my comment on your blog. Love when that happens…
I love this, Susan. It puts me in mind of Mary Oliver, my favorite poet I think.Might want to think about this for the contest.
Oh! My goodness, I have not read her, but I just did a quick Google search and I think I should, as I am now entranced by sleeping in the forest.” Honored that my words reminded you of her, and will put this one aside for that! Thanks so much!

One of those ones that just came out? Excellent.>KB
Yes–my favorite kind ;)
Lucky you – I’m picking the flakes
of my least favourite guest from the shag-pile and then I’ll do the ironing! ;)
Hahaha–this was the first poetic
reaction in the chain that started the whole “Inspiring each Other” idea.
Yes, I’ve been bouncing around the results. Tomorrow will be interesting. :)
I think so! Just check out Franzad’s blog first, as that is where the first poem will be born!
A precious moment that be. I’d like to ride such a wave again one day. Enjoy!
This was one of those poems that just–IS in a moment. My favorite kind to write…
Hahahaa… Now Bruce sure has some explaining to do (or not). Now whatever he has put in your head must really be working. But let us agree, sometimes daydreaming is more realistic and sweeter than reality. The lines in between deliberately pale for the dopamine to kick in… Lovely
Oh, Obinna–this really was exciting!
Bruce wrote a poem that spawned another one in response to it in my mind as I was writing a comment on his blog. I hurried over here, wrote this one, which then inspired another poet to write a poem. Her poem, in turn, inspired another poet in Europe. So, inspiration skipped from the UK to the US and back again over to Europe all in the space of an hour. I loooooove the internet!
OK…maybe my thoughts ran a ‘little’ ahead of me…
:) like where your thoughts ran–that poem surely came from dopamine receptors firing.
Ok…here is the 2nd helping… http://archdukepoesy.wordpress.com/2012/12/10/i-am-the-2nd/
I am… http://wp.me/p2s49i-1C just hoping to extend the link to Nigeria… wouldn’t hurt, would it?
Oh, yes! Thanks for joining in!
Swimming an ocean of bliss. How heavenly. Wonderful writing, Susan.
Oh, Celestine, thank you.
