The Weeds

CaptureMy Featured Blogger this week is Rose Perez of Poet Rummager. Rose, who sell collectibles and art online, often finds things that, as she puts it, “have hilarious and, at times, dark stories to tell.” And finding these poetical prompts too “thrilling (and) creatively random” to ignore, she simply has to tell their stories.

Poet Rummager

I don’t make wishes anymore.

They float away.

Unrestrained

Clutching the earth

Sinking teeth into dirt

Sprouting into monsters

Once held in captivity

Now wild and rampant

Behold the weeds of my iniquity.

  1. Excellent! My definition of a great poem is one that paints a word picture in a few words, is understandable, and has a profound message. This is a great poem.
