Day 16

NaPoWriMo- Write an erasure poem from an excerpt of Annie Dillard's book The Writing Life.
A Writer’s Spark

The curtain’s sparks burnt
red hot cigarette holes
in the threadbare rug,
fire’s rumbling heat
flew vengeful flames
‘round the kitchen table.
Roaring inferno heat
that seemed to melt
shaky hands, ashen face
came so close it singed
her tattered yellow sleeve.
Faster than flying fingers
across an old typewriter,
the torch spread fire
through the endless pages
of the writer’s creativity.

Creative fire is a force unto itself. Vivid and evocative.
