Bookish Invitations

You throw your pen across the river

It lands at the feet of angels

It is Lucifer who writes

Furiously in your

Book of passions. Take

The plunge. Why chance

It? You cheat

  1. Brilliant. “You throw your pen across the river.” Yup, unshackle yourself from the chains of convention and see where your ability takes you. Lucifer I interpret as that uncharted, fascinating place we never explore because of too many rules. For some strange reason and I know there is no analogy, but reading this poem took my mind to Coleridge’s “Kubla Khan.” Can’t tell why. Coleridge crafting one of his greatest works in pain and under the influence of his medication (opium) and letting his ability run wild, perhaps? Lovely read ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Interesting line breaks that create multiple meanings and the transition from angels to Lucifer was surprising. Creative and evocative writing that always takes me down an unexpected path. I love that about your style.

  3. Lovely poem, Jaya! Brisk sudden actions (such as throwing the pen in anger) can lead to a surprisingly helpful response from the person least likely to expect it.

    Thank you for sharing!
