DMC: "Nothing" by Jessica Bigi


Untraced daffodils
Umbrella rains
Unfold wings
Untangle strings
Unwinding winds
Unwanted bees
Unrolling rivers
Untraced dandelions
Unhitch leaves
Unraked yards
Umbrella moon
Unfolded snowflakes    
Unmarked pages
Unwritten untraced
Unseasoned nothing

  1. I really like the mood you create here, Jessica. In order not to trip over the phrases, the reader slows down reading it and takes time to ponder the nothingness.

  2. Very nice! There's a lot of thoughtfulness going on here.
