Painting the Sky with Poets: #NaPoWriMo Day 24

Photo by Devon Rockola on

In April I become as soft as rain 

trusting the distance in landing 

if every day was Sunday then I’d

paint the sky with the poets 

awaken, Amiri Baraka, and give us your chisel edge stroke “Who blew up America” 

awake, Gil Scott Heron, sideleaf brush as common folk “Living in the Bottle”

awaken, Phillis Wheatley, a fine stroke of transparency 

 “remember christan, Negroes Black as Cain

 May be refin’d and join th’angelic train”

awake, awake, get up  Mary Oliver “tell me what it is, 

you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

oh I could go on & live in sky-meetings  as words themselves,

 where the dead poets paint my world brand 



my sky would run -red with love 

as love is..

    Your poem is beautiful as they always are, Krissy. I love the lines, ‘if every day was Sunday, I’d paint the sky with poets’. It’s a great visualisation. I hadn’t heard of any of those poets, so I looked up Gil Heron and listened to ‘Living in the Bottle’, which was very interesting. I like to learn something new every day. Have a lovely day. Xx ❀
