I’m joining the challenge 🙂 I hope you will too! I’ve decided to write from the perspective of my characters from my NaNoWriMo project. Hopefully, this will help me understand their motivations, desires, and struggles a bit more.
Today’s poem is from my main heroine. I still don’t know her name yet 😀
With reverence, I study the night sky.
I read the stars dappled across the ebony expanse
analyzing, translating, listening
I scrutinize until my eyes are dry, my fingertips worn
from transcribing the message over and over again
onto parchment paper she will burn.
All of this is for her.
Will she let me leave this tower, this prison without doors?
There you have it 🙂 A short piece for now. Happy writing, friends! I can’t wait to read your poems.
