Day #28

National Poetry Month: Day #28

Today the challenge was to find a news article, and to write a poem using (mostly, if not only) words from the article!

the ordeal

desperate

he hopped a fence
bound for Hawaii
despite dangers
he stowed away.

desperate.

displaced in ethiopia.
a somali woman
in a stick hut
weeps

desperate

distraught and alarmed
clutching her headscarf
she waits and hopes
to reunite.

About cjpjordan

A poet, a writer, an artist, a thinker, a musician and occasionally a skeptic, when I'm not teaching or traveling, I love to read and write and play the ukelele. I'm loving life with my Little Wonder--his energy and joy for life is contagious. He makes me believe and hope again. I don't want to forget these moments that pass so quickly so I have decided to write them down for posterity and for you to enjoy.
