In the middle of 2008, I discovered a poet who changed my life; De Waal Venter.
I enrolled in a course of tuition with him and so embarked on a delightful journey of writing my own poems.
Yesterday he issued the following challenge, feel free to join in the fun if you like:
the dog’s lazy python of a tail
his fingers strong as green vine branches
her cheek undisturbed milkiness on the grape
I bit the day in half, liked the first bit better
Can a snail snarl? I can, but won’t today
Can some, or all of these fragments inspire a poem by you? You may use (and adapt) any or all of these into your poem.
