Another poem written to a prompt provided in How to Write Poetry: A Guided Journal with Prompts to Ignite Your Imagination. On the technique of imagery, the prompt guided me to imagine a vivid physical setting from somewhere that I’ve traveled, focus on specific imagery from the scene, and transport the reader to that place.
Fanore The long grass slumbers, a field of feathery green; succumbed long ago to the wild winds off the Atlantic sea. A jumble of old fence, worn wood posts and crooked cable, finished blocking the seekers from this soul sanctuary. Where the earth rises to a crest, an alter high, the view opens; her arms spread so wide, inviting you in. The breathless blue sky dips to meet the deep dark sea. A mystery - their infinite play to the horizon. Waves crash and collide speaking to the stony shore. Salty mist moist; the hair on your skin quivers with its touch.
