NaPoWriMo Day 29: Response to Plath Poetry Project

Hummingbird-nest

Poem  being responded to:

AMONG THE NARCISSI

Spry, wry, and gray as these March sticks,

Percy bows, in his blue peajacket, among the narcissi.

He is recuperating from something on the lung.

 

Response:

 

Percy needed flight free,

I tried to nurse but he abandoned me,

Yet was he ever really caught?

My heart unworthy cage, all for naught,

I too am in free flight,

As apt to soar in day as night,

My nest awaits,

The fevered taste,

Time will weave sticks into something worthy,

I release all, from birth to sea to infinity

Innumerable

12,568 reported deaths

Each night with eyes like hands

Clasping earthen beads

Malas and rosaries

Like a phoenix rising with stars and sun

Irrepressible iridescence, flight begun

Does your divinity dance in daring dawn dreams?

Create and commune in cave of citrine,

Vibrant violet velvet vine,

Warm water wading, wind woven words flow like wine.

Quizzical, did the quest conquer or just proceed question?

Open origin,

Opulent ocean,

Let your remarkable roots rust,

In turquoise time we trust,

All to rise to be true,

Tortoise and tender new tattoo.

Is your feather free, your fire fine?

Fabulous freak, let the flag fly!

Thank the input, thank the insight,

Leap in the lavender lilac light.

Have a holy healing holiday,

Going knowing, all goals and growth are found in Grace.
