Fun with Repetitive Form

Poster with Camellias by Maria L. Berg 2021

I received my National Poetry Month poster in the mail today, so I thought I’d post it on my door and take some pictures with the lovely camellias already in bloom. As I was attempting this photo, the sun began to break over the roof, creating that lovely glare and reflection.

NaPoWriMo has a very interesting prompt today. The idea of “double deed” seems to be perfect for Janus words once I come up with my repetitive set-up. I had a little trouble getting started, so I used my personal universal deck for inspiration, and it worked!

The PAD prompt is a title prompt “(blank Me).”

Today’s Janus word for the A to Z Challenge is replace which can mean “to restore to a former place or position”, or “to put something new in the place of.”

Didn’t MEan to be MEan

When silence needs to be replaced
then take it into the sun and dust it off
When the dust is fine and sparkling
then pay the fine that fits the bill
When the bill arrives, don’t clip it to bits
then clip the bits to a to-fix list
When in a fix, can’t find what to wear
then wear down a mean mirror and spin until blinding
When the mean of the glare is leased as a power source
then find a new lease on life and take off
When the trajectory is off, who knows where we’ll wind up
then the wind up has potential to really go
When potential begins to go, will it
then be replaced with silence for a song
