‘Our optional daily prompt, once again pulled from our archives. Today’s prompt is a poem of negation – yes (or maybe, no), I challenge you to write a poem that involves describing something in terms of what it is not, or not like. For example, if you chose a whale as the topic of your poem, you might have lines like “It does not settle down in trees at night, cooing/Nor will it fit in your hand.”’
I guess this might appear a bit ‘niche,’ especially if you’re not of a particularly spiritual or religious bent, (or even if you are!). So it’s important that it’s read as being tongue-in-cheek and in the context of my earlier acrostic on prayer , which reflects far more accurately where I am now.
What Prayer is? Perfectly articulated ‘to do’ list Reminding the Almighty of the fine detail of which He (always ‘He’) is of course totally unaware. Answers immediate and tying in with His ‘perfect plan.’ Yielding no ground to the doubters, faithless, depressed or just plain perplexed. Ever -ready, never stumbling Rationality, irreality, ready for all eventualities.
